Mahrez joined us in July 2018 and has gone on to win three Premier League titles, three League Cups, an FA Cup as well as being part of the team that reached the Champions League Final.
But how did he get here?
Well, we find out in this latest City Studios documentary, which starts from his early beginnings at AAS Sarcelles to his trial at St Mirren, his move to first club Quimper and up the French leagues to Le Havre where he was scouted by Leicester City.
We look at his successful spell at the Foxes under Nigel Pearson and Claudio Ranieri, where he was a key member of the team that avoided relegation against all the odds before achieving the unthinkable the following season - winning the Premier League!
We also look at his move here to City and his life in the sky blue shirt.
The documentary also covers his international career and his undoubted highlight on that stage, winning the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) with Algeria in 2019.
You’ll hear from important people in his story, such as Erick Mombaerts, Pearson, N’Golo Kante, Islam Slimani, Wes Morgan, Steve Walsh, Ranieri, Bernardo Silva and Txiki Begiristain, as well as a host of other team-mates from former clubs.
This is one not to be missed.
CITY+ subscribers can check out the documentary in the video player above!
We will also have The Riyad Mahrez Story documentary available to our Arabic and French audiences in the coming days.
