Mahrez Still Adjusting To Life With City

Mahrez Still Adjusting To Life With City

Algeria international Riyad Mahrez believes he is set to reap the rewards after adjusting to life at Manchester City. Mahrez has had limited game-time since City broke their club transfer record in July by signing him from Leicester for £60million.

But the Algeria international claimed his first City goals on Saturday as a second-half brace helped the Premier League champions demolish Cardiff 5-0.

The winger admits he is still getting used to City’s style of play but feels he is getting up to speed with the demands of Pep Guardiola.

“It’s not been a tough time for me,” Mahrez told reporters.
“When you arrive at a big club you have to adapt to the style. The manager [Pep Guardiola] has helped me a lot, and in the last two weeks I have felt a lot better.

“You can see that on the pitch. I never complain, I just work hard in training, and it’s paying (off) now.

“But I have to keep going – scoring is not a final thing.
“The style of play is different, but I stayed at Leicester for nearly five years and knew I would need time to adapt at a new club like City.”
