Espérance de Tunis has officially announced their first summer signing, strengthening their squad with the addition of Tunisia’s national team goalkeeper, Béchir Ben Saïd. This move, confirmed by various reliable sources, marks a significant acquisition for the club.

Béchir Ben Saïd, a 31-year-old goalkeeper standing at 1.94 meters, joins Espérance de Tunis on a three-year contract, which will keep him at the club until June 2027.

The experienced goalkeeper joins as a free agent after completing a six-season spell at US Monastir.

During his time at Monastir, Ben Saïd made 150 appearances and won two titles, securing the Tunisian Cup in 2020 and the Super Cup in 2021.

Journalist Ahmed Adala first reported on Friday afternoon that an agreement in principle had been reached between Espérance and Ben Saïd.

The goalkeeper had also attracted interest from other clubs, including Wydad Casablanca in Morocco and Al-Okhdood in Saudi Arabia.

Despite these offers, Ben Saïd chose to continue his career in Tunisia with Espérance.

At Espérance, Ben Saïd will compete for the starting goalkeeper position with Amanallah Memmiche, a promising young talent who is 11 years his junior.

The club faces a demanding schedule in the upcoming season, which includes the Tunisian Championship and Cup, the CAF Champions League, the newly established African Football League, and the 2025 FIFA Club World Cup. This packed calendar ensures ample playing time for both goalkeepers.

An official source from Espérance de Tunis emphasized the importance of having depth in the goalkeeping department: “Next season will be busy.

With the Tunisian Championship and Cup, the Champions League, the African Football League, and the 2025 Club World Cup, there will be enough matches to play for Béchir Ben Saïd and Amanallah Memmiche,” the source told Africa Foot United.

The determination of the starting goalkeeper will ultimately rest with the coaching staff.

Coach Miguel Cardoso and goalkeeping coach Wassim Naouara will evaluate both Ben Saïd and Memmiche to establish the hierarchy for the upcoming season.

Their decisions will be critical in ensuring Espérance’s success across multiple competitions.

Béchir Ben Saïd’s transfer to Espérance de Tunis marks a new chapter in his career, providing him with an opportunity to compete at the highest levels of club football.

His experience and skills will be invaluable to Espérance as they aim to excel in domestic and international competitions.

In conclusion, the signing of Béchir Ben Saïd represents a strategic move by Espérance de Tunis to bolster their squad with a seasoned goalkeeper.

With a challenging season ahead, the addition of Ben Saïd provides the team with both experience and depth, crucial elements for their ambitious campaign.

The fans of Espérance will undoubtedly be eager to see how Ben Saïd contributes to the club’s quest for glory in the coming years.
