Morocco and Chelsea football star, Hakim Ziyech has decided to forego his personal bonus at the world cup following the Atlas Lions impressive run during the tournament.
According to Arabic publication, The Arabic Post, Ziyech has never received any of the bonus he received while playing for Morocco as he gives all of it away to charities and members of the team’s staff.
