Check out ‘The Riyad Mahrez Story’, which charts the football journey of our former winger, on CITY+.

Mahrez, who was a key figure in our Treble success in 2022/23 and won four Premier League titles, three League Cups, two FA Cups, the Community Shield and the Champions League during five years in blue before joining Al-Ahli in the summer of 2023.

But how did he get here?

Well, we find out in this City Studios documentary, which starts from his early beginnings at AAS Sarcelles to his trial at St Mirren, his move to first club Quimper and up the French leagues to Le Havre where he was scouted by Leicester City.

We look at his successful spell at the Foxes under Nigel Pearson and Claudio Ranieri, where he was a key member of the team that avoided relegation against all the odds before achieving the unthinkable the following season - winning the Premier League!

We also look at his move here to City and his life in the sky blue shirt.

The documentary also covers his international career and his undoubted highlight on that stage, winning the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) with Algeria in 2019.

You’ll hear from important people in his story, such as Erick Mombaerts, Pearson, N’Golo Kante, Islam Slimani, Wes Morgan, Steve Walsh, Ranieri, Bernardo Silva and Txiki Begiristain, as well as a host of other team-mates from former clubs.
