Transfers: Riyad Benayad joins a Tunisian championship club

Algerian international striker, Riyad Benayad, is about to open a new chapter in his young career by joining a new club.

In advanced negotiations for several days with the club of the Tunisian capital, Espérance Sportive de Tunis, the young striker of the Algerian team officially commits until 2025 with ES Tunis.

The quadruple African champion club announced the arrival of Riyad Benayad on its social networks by revealing the duration of his contract which is 3 years according to the Tunisian club.

Loaned last season to the Entente de Sétif, the Paradou Athletic Club player is taking off and joining the Tunisian champions in order to experience a new experience on the continental level.

Indeed, the 25-year-old striker was decisive in the previous edition of Africa’s most prestigious club competition, the CAF Champions League.

Thus, Benayad was involved in 8 goals for the ESS in the African Cup including 5 achievements and 3 assists. A performance that earned him a summons for the first time to the Algerian national team.

The best choice for the player?

One of the revelations of the last gathering of the Algerian team, striker Riyad Benayad has chosen to join the blood and gold club of the Tunisian championship.

Important factor on the scene of African competitions, the EST club would ensure a better knowledge of the grounds of the African continent to the Algerian striker. A godsend for the young Benayad who takes a liking to African competitions by being effective against opposing goals.

If the latest echoes from the Tunisian championship do not prove to be conducive to the evolution of Algerian players in the Tunisian championship following the decision of the Tunisian football federation to no longer consider Algerian players as non-foreigners.

Thus, Tunisian clubs will be obliged, from the start of next season, to respect a threshold which describes them to field a maximum of 3 players of non-Tunisian nationality during championship matches.
