Leicester City Wasted 2 Years Of My Career – Mahrez

Manchester City winger, Riyad Mahrez has said Leicester City’s reluctance to sell him to Arsenal 3 years ago made him lose two years of his career.

According to him, the deal falling through meant he had to wait on Manchester City to do a deal.

He said it was not easy to move from being the best player in the Premier League to being a part of a team fighting against relegation.

His words, “After the title, if I’d left for a top team, it wouldn’t have been the same story.

“For me, it’s clear that I lost two years at the highest level. I lost two years! Because instead of arriving at City at 27, I could have been there at 24, 25.

“Leicester blocked me. They told me: ‘You’re not leaving, you’re not leaving’.

“My agent had spoken to [Arsene] Wenger who really wanted me. It was nearly all done with Arsenal in 2016. I was really frustrated.

“It wasn’t easy to go from being the best player in the Premier League to being a part of a team fighting against relegation.

“It’s not the same job. Everyone is waiting for you around the corner.”

On Pep, “He is a winner, he is there to make us progress,”

“Guardiola, he’ll explain everything to us, decrypt everything, from A to Z, with the aim of determining the match. He is focused on every game.”
