Riyad Mahrez unconcerned by Manchester City competition: 'I never thought about that'

Pep Guardiola finally managed to land Mahrez after four failed bids and the Algeria worldwide will now look to secure a regular starting berth in the defending Premier League champions' star-studded side. "Players at top clubs always have to face competition for places, it is normal for big clubs to have a lot of great players and City are a big club with a big manager", he explained.

"The most important thing is I'm here".

'It's a club that wants to win this type of trophy, the Champions League is for big clubs and City is a big club'.

"The prices have been big in every country. I am happy, I am starting a new challenge in my life".

"If I moved sooner, maybe I wouldn't have been happy".

He said: "That means a lot for me".

"What they did was fantastic work". "Breaking all records in the Premier League, which is unbelievable". Now I'm here and I'm happy.

Though he was close to joining the Premier League champions in January, questions have been raised over how the winger fits into a team already flush with attacking talent.

Last season saw us fall at the quarter-final stage to Liverpool, despite finishing 25 points ahead of the Anfield side in the Premier League, a moment that represented the low point of our campaign.

Mahrez, who was added significantly to Leicester's extraordinary title win in 2016 scoring 17 goals, said the size of the fee does not bother him nor put any pressure on him. "I am very confident about myself". "It's a goal. Now we will have to work and see what can happen".
