Mahrez appreciates time at Leicester as he begins life at City
Riyad Mahrez has expressed his appreciation for Leicester City after allowing him to join the English Premier League champions Manchester City.
City paid a reported club record fee of £60million to acquire the Algerian winger and Marhrez is thankful to the 2015 EPL champions whom they share great memories and history.
Mahrez arrived at Leicester in 2014 and was crucial in the 2015/16 season, scoring 17 goals.
"To all Leicester fans, we have made some amazing memories and history together," Mahrez tweeted.
"Winning the Premiership against all odds was just something else and none of this would have been possible without your extraordinary support for me and the team. I want to thank all of you for welcoming me to the club right from the start and continuing to give me the belief and encouragement to achieve what we have together," he added.
"I would also like to thank my teammates, staff, and everyone at the club who have become a big part of my life in the last few years. Now it's time for me to move on and try to build on what I have developed here, but I will always remember my time at the club with great joy and pride. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you." Mahrez appreciated.
