Man City news: Riyad Mahrez confident of impressing after £60m move from Leicester | Daily Star

Manchester City's record signing, Riyad Mahrez, is confident he cannot only break into the champions' first team but also help improve it.

Only Kevin De Bruyne, with £280 000 (R5 million) a week, and Sergio Aguero as well as David Silva, who are both understood to pocket £220 000 (R3.92 million) weekly, earn more than the African.

I thought what City did a year ago was fantastic, it was unbelievable to break all those Premier League records, but I am confident about myself.

"Watching them from afar has been a pleasure".

'I know they have an ambition to go further. I made the decision to come here because I want to be part of that. At home (in November) we thought we could beat them but we lost'.

Mahrez, who was named the CAF African Footballer of the Year in 2016 after lifting the Premier League title with Leicester City in the 2015/16 campaign, made 179 appearances for the Foxes, scoring 48 goals and assisting another 38 strikes.

'The feeling isn't being scared, but you are thinking you're going to have to defend and it's going to be hard. Have your say in the comments section below. They beat everyone, ' Mahrez said.

"Of course. It's a club who wants to win this type of trophy", he said. "It's a goal. Now we will have to work and see what can happen". "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.
