Mon 17 May 2021 | 7:18

The Algerian winger insists he has no desire to leave the Emirates stadium.

Riyad Mahrez

joined

Leicester City

from Ligue 2 side

Le Havre

in 2014. The Algeria international won the Premier League with the Foxes in 2016 and moved to

Manchester City

. Having won two Premier League titles with the Citizens, the experienced winger has established himself as an important player in

Pep Guardiola

’s team. The 30-year-old has been used as a substitute lately, but that has not changed his perspective on staying at the English club.

“My future? I feel very good at Man City. There is no desire to look elsewhere,”

he told

RMC

.

“I don't know yet what my situation will be. But I'm happy in city and that's where I want to be.

"

Asked whether he thinks about ending his career at

Marseille

, he added:

“No, that’s not something I tell myself. I want to end my career in England and Manchester City. So that’s not something that I am considering.”

Asked if he expects himself to win the Ballon d’Or, he said:

“No, I wouldn't go so far as to say that. I will stay focused on this Champions League final. I am not here to believe myself to be a future Ballon d'Or. We will play the matches, try to make a difference with the team and then we will see.”

In addition to his Premier League title with Leicester City, Mahrez has won two other league titles since joining Manchester City.

When asked which of his Premier League title wins he enjoyed the most, he responded:

“The Leicester title was the very first one I won and with a team not at all expected to achieve that. It will always remain a special memory. Now, with City, it's really not easy to win the league. Every year, the competitions pushes us. When Liverpool took our title from us, we weren't happy. And that motivated us. So this title is also very special.”

Manchester City will face

Brighton

in their next Premier League match on Tuesday.
