Riyad Mahrez has had an exceptional season with Manchester City. Winner of the Premier League and nominated for the title of best player of the Citizens this season, the captain of the Algerian national team also panics the statistics.
Manchester City finished the 2021/2022 financial year with the Premier League title. Riyad Mahrez contributed to the 8th coronation in the history of the club thanks to his good performances but also to the several goals he scored and the decisive balls delivered.
The least we can say is that the right winger of the national team will have had an exceptional season, if not the best since he joined Man City in the summer of 2018. Indeed, he panics the statistics , with 24 goals scored in all competitions in 46 games played, including 30 starts and 9 assists delivered. Top scorer of the “Citizens” this season, he is involved in 33 Manchester City achievements. A record that largely pleads in his favor and which allowed him to be nominated for the best Citizen player of the season, along with Kevin De Bruyne and Bernando Silva. A personal consecration that is really close to the heart of the native of Sarcelles.
Riyadh reveals the secret of its success
If Riyad Mahrez has clearly turned a corner in recent months, it is no coincidence. It is rather the reward of a huge work provided in training
“I refined my game a bit, before I was only in dribbling mode. It’s good too, but at the very top level, you have to be decisive. At some point you have to ask yourself good questions. I was a winger, but now I’m a winger who fits more. Dribbling is good when you’re 18.19, but today you have to score goals, give passes and help your teams win. “, he will say, in an interview with Canal +.
On the offensive level, the statistics of the captain of the national team speak for themselves. But he has improved a lot defensively. “Before, I was doing defensive withdrawals, but with Guardiola it became constant,” he said. A development that can also be seen in the numbers, since he is City’s attacking player to have made the most ball recoveries behind Bernardo Silva (142 against 205).
It should be remembered that Riyad Mahrez has not yet decided on his future with Manchester City. One year from the end of his contract, he has not yet decided whether he will continue the adventure with the Citizens or go to monetize his talent in another championship, when we know that he is coveted by the biggest names. of the European continent.
