The 38-year-old has been in top form this season in the Saudi Pro League, scoring 20 goals in 18 games while also providing nine assists. His side is currently second in the league table, behind their rivals Al Hilal. 

In spite of switching leagues at the start of the year, his form has not diminished. The forward hit the ground running after the World Cup, and faces a tough challenge to try and win the league this year.
