City face Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday and ahead of the match, we can reveal an original Riyad Mahrez documentary will be available on CITY+ and Recast in January.

The Algerian winger is particularly associated with this weekend’s fixture having helped Leicester to an incredible title triumph in the 2015/16 season.

One of his standout performances in that campaign actually came against Manuel Pellegrini’s City, scoring in a 3-1 win for the Foxes at the Etihad Stadium.

He joined City two years later and has enjoyed a wildly successful time under Pep Guardiola, winning eight major honours including three further Premier League titles.

City Studios met with many of the people closest to Mahrez including Claudio Ranieri and Wes Morgan, his manager and captain at Leicester, to get the inside track on his journey from the lower leagues of France to becoming one of the best players in the world.
