The life of Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez and Algeria
Riyad was playing in the Saarsel city team, it never occurred to anyone to be one of the most prominent stars of the continent and the whole world,
This was because of his slim physical structure and Riyad Mahrez says:
“They used to say I was too skinny, and anyone would push me away from the ball,” Mahrez said in an earlier interview with Al-Ghaadrian, adding: “I had good skills, but physically, I wasn’t strong, I wasn’t quick, but I worked very hard”.
His thinness was not the biggest obstacle to him, but also the circumstances of his family,
His mother worked as a cleaner in a sanatorium, and his father worked technically in electronics and he came from a family that was not rich but had enough to live,
He has not trained in the ball in well-known positions, according to a report by Sue Foot.
One of the biggest traumas riyad mahrez suffered in his early life was the death of his father, who was only 15 years old.
The shock did not break the player’s back but motivated him to reach his dream and pursue his achievement,
To be able to confirm himself in the junior grades of The Saarsel Club, and then move to Kempe club in the second division.

But the break in his career is his move to the premier league with Leicester City,
Where he was crowned the best player in the Premier League and the title of the local league,
What qualified him to move to Man City,
at a record price (£65 million), achieving in his first year three domestic titles,
He even scored a goal in the league title at the expense of Brighton,
with a shot no less brilliant than his goal against Nigeria in the Semi-Finals of the African Cup of Nations, which algeria crowned.
Since the childhood of Riyad Mahrez, he is interested in his hair dressing and used to go to a hairdresser named Naseem,
“All the time, children, ages 5 and 6, ask me to tell him how to feel like Mahrez.
A lot of customers come to me because of Riad coming from Belgium and from everywhere.
I know all his haircuts, and he always changes them and is always imitated by people. It’s like Cristiano Ronaldo in Saarsel”.
