Reuters reported that Prince Alwaleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia is giving each player a bonus of 1 million riyals (about 345 million won) and the Saudi government 500,000 riyals (about 172 million won). In other words, all players including Hyun-soo Jang and Al-Hilal received a bonus of over 500 million won. An additional bonus will be paid if the team beats Real Madrid to win the title.

Al-Hilal’s advancement to the final is the third Asian Football Confederation (AFC) club’s history and the first Saudi team’s. The AFC clubs that reached the finals of this competition were Kashima Antlers (Japan) in 2016 and Al Ain (United Arab Emirates) in 2018, and they were all satisfied with the runner-up. On the other hand, Real Madrid has won the tournament four times (2014, 2016, 2017, 2018), making it the most successful team ever.
