Home » Riyadh Mahrez Wants To Remain With City

Manchester City winger Riyadh Mahrez has revealed that he wants to remain with the Premier League Champions next season in spite of being linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium. The 28-year-old did not fully establish himself as a first-team regular with the Cityzens this season as he went on to play 27 times in the top-flight, scoring several goals and recording four assists.

Last weekend, he was on target for City and put them 3-1 ahead of Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex. This effectively won Pep Guardiola’s side the League title for a second consecutive season.

“It’s not easy to come to a team who are settled and have the players who play,” he said. “That squad did everything last season. I knew it wouldn’t be easy in my first year but I’m very confident in myself and have no doubts about my quality. I knew that, when I had my chance, I’d take it. I scored at Brighton and helped the team.” said Mahrez.

When speaking about whether he is happy at City, he added:

“I’m very happy here,” Mahrez said. “I’m not going somewhere else because I don’t play. It’s part of the game. I need to be strong, stay strong. It’s part of my personality. I never hide from things.”
