The 24-year-old full-back received the award at the Joy Awards in the Moroccan capital Riyadh after a memorable year on the international and national stage.


Hakimi played a key role as the Atlas Lions reached the quarterfinals of the Africa Cup of Nations in January before helping the North Africans to a record-breaking World Cup campaign.


Morocco, who had only made it past the group stage of a World Cup once before Qatar 2022, became the first African team to reach the semifinals of the tournament, where they were eliminated by France.


Hakimi, who has 61 caps and eight goals for the Moroccan national team, scored four goals and provided six assists in 38 games in 2022 for his club Paris St-Germain, which won its 10th Ligue 1 title last April.
