Bounou shared game time with Rene Roman in his first season and played precisely half of the games as they were promoted to second place. Read everything about his net worth.
Moroccan goalkeeper Yassine Bounou plays for Sevilla in La Liga and the Morocco national team. Bono was born in Montreal, Quebec, to Moroccan parents. When he was three years old, his family relocated to Casablanca, and in 1999, he joined Wydad Casablanca as a young member. Bounou’s childhood nickname was Bono. Although he preferred to play with his feet, it was later suggested that he switch to goalkeeping due to his height, which he accepted as a challenge. Bounou transferred to La Liga team Atletico Madrid on June 14, 2012, after initially being assigned to the B team.
He signed a new four-year contract in 2013 and made a number of appearances for the team as a third goalkeeper from the bench. He was deservingly promoted to the starting lineup in the summer of 2014 after Thibaut Courtois and Daniel Aranzubia’s departures. Bounou began a season-long loan to Real Zaragoza of the Segunda Division on September 1. He made his debut against UD Las Palmas and was a part of just 16 games overall. Bounou and Girona agreed to a two-year contract in writing on July 12.
He shared game time with Rene Roman in his first season and played exactly half of the games as they were promoted to second place. In 2019, Bono joined Sevilla FC on loan for 12 months after being relegated with the Catalans. He got game time in the domestic cup and helped the team win the 2019–20 UEFA Europa League despite being Toma Vaclk’s backup during the league season, and as they say, the rest is history. In the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Qatar, he guided his team in defeating Spain on penalties in the Round of 16 match to advance to the World Cup quarterfinals.
Bounou had the option to represent either Morocco or Canada, but he chose the former. He took part in one game for the under-20 team at the 2012 Toulon Tournament. In November 2022, Morocco’s 26-man roster for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar included Bounou. For the first time, Morocco made it to the quarterfinals after Bono made crucial saves in the round of 16 penalty shootouts against Spain. Yassine Bounou has a reported net worth of approximately 1.5 million Euros as of 2022.

He had previously participated for the under-23 team at the 2012 Olympics. Yassine Bounou’s transfer value is currently a whooping £1.2 million.
