Inter wing back Achraf Hakimi dedicated his first goal against Bologna to compatriot Mohamed Aberhoun, according to a report from Italian media outlet FcInter1908.

The report details how the 22-year-old Moroccan wing back, who is contracted to the Nerazzurri until 2025, pulled up his shirt to reveal a tribute to Aberhoun, who passed away earlier this week at the age of 31 due to stomach cancer.

Aberhoun was diagnosed with the disease in February of this year after complaining of nausea, and by October announced that he was feeling better, although sadly this did not last long.

The 22-year-old Hakimi, who never played alongside the former Moghreb Tétouan defender, highlighted the tragedy, paying tribute to his compatriot.

Hakimi has made 14 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 847 minutes. In that time, he has scored three goals and provided four assists, slowing adapting to coach Antonio Conte’s tactical system.
