ISTANBUL (AA) - Riyad Mahrez has joined Saudi Arabia's Al-Ahli from Manchester City on a four-year deal.
“To play for Manchester City has been an honor and privilege. I came to City to win trophies and enjoy my football, and I achieved all that and so much more,” Mahrez said.
“I have had five unforgettable years with this football club, working with unbelievable players, fantastic supporters, and the best manager in the world,” Manchester City’s official website quoted him as saying.
The Al-Ahli posted a video on Twitter, highlighting Riyad’s previous stint at Manchester City. “The wait is over: Riyad is real,” it said.
He won 11 major trophies with City, including a UEFA Champions League title and four Premier League trophies, and left the club as a Treble winner in what was his final campaign.
The 32-year-old Algerian winger spent five years with the Citizens after signing from Leicester City in 2018 and produced 78 goals and 59 assists in 236 matches.
