The Turning Point of Riyad Mahrez's Green Field Career2021-02-08 05:23
The speed of a player combined with the ability to get past the opponent's defense is the dream of many coaches. Of these two abilities, a team tactician can expect goals from the player or at least open up opportunities for his colleagues.
The two abilities are in the figure of Manchester City striker Riyad Mahrez. Operating on the right side of the opponent's defense, his movements are difficult to stop. He is one of the important players in coach Pep Guardiola in building City. Mahrez has been an important part of City's success since arriving at the Etihad from Leicester City.
The Muslim player from Algeria was bought by City in the summer of 2018 from Leicester. He has made 179 appearances for the Citizens in all competitions according to Transfermarkt's record, Thursday (28/1). He recorded 31 goals and 31 assists.
The 29-year-old player has presented five titles for city rivals Manchester United, namely one English Premier League title, one FA Cup, two Carling Cups and a Community Shield trophy.
This season, Mahrez appeared in 25 matches in all competitions and scored six goals and three assists. Mahrez is not always Guardiola's choice in the starting lineup. But every time he appeared, he always made a difference in the game.
The success of City holding the top of the Premier League standings this season cannot be separated from Mahrez's role. He appeared in 14 matches in the Premier League and was not played only five times. That means Mahrez is needed in the City squad.
Mahrez's talent began to develop rapidly when he was in Leicester's uniform. Together with Jamie Vardy et al, Mahrez has become one of the successful figures of the Foxes because he won the Premier League in 2016. He is a defensive breaker with his two special abilities.
Mahrez's name is increasingly flying and has become an attraction for top European clubs to get his services. And, City won Mahrez's hunt in 2018. He is a player who is considered suitable for Guardiola's tactics.
