Confident Mahrez expects important Manchester City role

Riyad Mahrez faced the press at the City Football Academy today after joining Manchester City from Leicester City for a club-record fee on Tuesday.

The Foxes signed Maguire previous year in a deal around £17 million from Hull City but his value has gone up following his impressive performance for England at the ongoing World Cup in Russian Federation.

"I have always believed that "H" (Harry Maguire) is a very good player, he has shown that since the day he came to Leicester and the season he had previous year", Mahrez said.

The former Hull City defender has been integral in England's run to the semi-final of the World Cup and his performances at the back have been widely lauded.

"Of course he deserves to play higher but Leicester are a good club as well, so it's him who has to decide and we will see".

Friedland, who is white, later repeated the word with human resources staff trying to address the original incident, Netflix said. Asked whether she was daring the company to sue over the name change, Bendapudi said, "It's not that type of situation at all".

Mahrez, 27, temporarily stopped training with Leicester after a move from the Foxes to City failed to materialise in January.

However, Torino are eager to keep hold of one of their prized assets and would only part with the Spaniard if they received a substantial offer. "I want to help this team improve and I believe that is what the manager wants".

"If I moved sooner, maybe I wouldn't have been happy". Now I'm here and it's the most important. "I am very confident about myself". City are a big club and have everything to try to win it. I'm starting a new challenge and a new life.

The deal to take him to the King Power Stadium, from then recently relegated Hull, cost just £17 million but he would now be worth almost triple that price. "It's a good thing". "If I'd moved sooner maybe I wouldn't have been happy, I don't know".

"City have ambition to go further than the Champions League quarter-finals like they did last season", he told the club's website.
