He is the first Arab player to wear the Real Madrid shirt. He arrived at Real Madrid after being named Best New Player of the Season with Blusens Monbus. The Tunisian center combines his great size with remarkable agility for such a tall man. To which we can add his great ability to intimidate opponents, great rebounding talent and a powerful presence above the hoop. In his Spanish league debut season he took his team to the playoffs for the first time in the Galician club's history, with excellent statistics: an average of 9.3 points per game, 5.4 rebounds, 1.6 blocks and individual rating of 11.1.
The signing has always shown tremendous admiration for his new club. Strangely enough, his greatest idol is Luis Figo, and he worships Zinedine Zidane, which reveals his other great passion: football. In the end destiny has led Mejri to also wear the shirt of his dreams. He arrived to Pablo Laso's team with the intention of continuing to grow, with Kevin Garnett as his childhood role model.
