Manchester City have done what they aimed to do. They won the Premier League, retaining the title with 98 points, winning last 14 matches of the campaign and 18 in the previous 19. Such incredible feat is something that Riyad Mahrez is very proud of and the Algerian winger says he hopes to stay at the club for the foreseeable future.

“It’s not easy to come to a team who are settled and have the players who play,” he told UK newspaper reporters. “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.”

“I’m very happy here,” Mahrez added. “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.”
