Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez has revealed he is keen to stay with the Premier League champions.
City retained the Premier League on Sunday following a 4-1 win over Brighton and Mahrez says he is happy despite having limited play time. The former Leicester City man who was on the scoresheet on Sunday says he will not seek a move away from Etihad in search of more playing time under boss Pep Guardiola.
“I’m very happy here. I’m not going somewhere else because I don’t play. It’s part of the game. I need to be strong, stay strong. It’s part of my personality, I never hide from things,” Mahrez told reporters.
“It’s not easy to come to a team who are settled and have the players who play. That squad did everything last season. I knew it wouldn’t be easy in my first year but I’m very confident in myself and have no doubts about my quality,” he added.
The Algerian has another chance of sealing a treble with Citizens who will take on Watford in the FA Cup final on Saturday.
