Riyad Mahrez ahead of his 200th Premier League game against Leicester City

Algeria international Riyad Mahrez has revealed that he wants to win more titles as he prepares to reach an important milestone in his career.

Mahrez is set to make his 200th Premier League appearances as Man City welcome his former club Leicester City to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

The 29-year-old is now determined to help the Citizens win the Premier League title this season after Liverpool were crowned 2019/20 champions for the first time in 30 years.

“I think the Premier League is the best league in the world for me,” Mahrez said.

“Obviously I didn’t play in all the leagues, but I love it. Two hundred games is an amazing achievement. I obviously want to play 200 or 300 more.

“My time in the Premier League has been very good. I won trophies, I scored some goals, I enjoyed playing in the Premier League, enjoyed home games and away games’ atmospheres, and I hope I will keep going until I retire.

“We weren’t good enough to win it last season, and now we know what we can improve on to try to be there at the end of the year.

“I think we have a very good squad and a very good team. I think it’s all about consistency and focus and we’ll be there at the end.”
