Riyad Mahrez has signed a four-year contract with Saudi Arabia’s Al-Ahli after leaving Manchester City.
“It has been an honour and privilege to play for Manchester City.” “I came to City to win trophies and have fun playing football, and I have done both and so much more,” Mahrez added.
“I have had five unforgettable years with this football club, working with unbelievable players, fantastic supporters, and the best manager in the world,” he said, according to Manchester City’s official website.
Riyad’s earlier time at Manchester City was highlighted in a video uploaded on Twitter by Al-Ahli. “The wait is over: Riyad is real,” the message stated.
He won 11 major trophies with City, including a UEFA Champions League trophy and four Premier League titles, and finished his last season as a Treble winner.
After joining from Leicester City in 2018, the 32-year-old Algerian winger spent five years with the Citizens, scoring 78 goals and assisting 59 times in 236 appearances.
