RIYADH: Al-Hilal’s French striker Bafetimbi Gomis has confirmed that his future at the club remains unresolved, while at the same time revealing his delight at helping the Riyadh giants retain the Saudi Pro League (SPL) title on Sunday.
A record-extending 17th title was achieved with a 1-0 win over Al-Taawoun thanks to Gomis’ fifth-minute goal at King Abdullah Sport City Stadium.
“I feel like all Hilal fans feel. We are very happy to win this league, which was not easy. I am not the champion; the champion is Al-Hilal. I am happy about that and now I need to end the season and celebrate with the fans and then we will see,” he told Arabic sports daily Arriyadiyah.
Gomis was unsure whether he would still be at the club for the start of the 2021-22 season.
“I don’t know about my future with Al-Hilal, and I don’t know about the day when I’ll leave. It could be in a year, two years, or two months, I don’t know.
“The most important thing when you play for Al-Hilal is that you enjoy your time, as we did, Sunday. We achieved the title, and we have to celebrate and have some fun,” he said.
The marksman is top scorer in the SPL with 24 goals, seven ahead of Al-Shabab’s Argentine striker Cristian Guanca.
