Mahrez Expects Important Manchester City Role

Press Association Sport�s selection of the best images from the 2017-18 Premier League season

"I have always believed that "H" (Harry Maguire) is a very good player, he has shown that since the day he came to Leicester and the season he had a year ago", Mahrez said at his first news conference as a Manchester City player.

Mahrez, speaking at his unveiling at City, said: "I believe "H" is a very good player".

Gareth Southgate's England side has been full of stars in Russian Federation this summer on their superb run to the World Cup semi-final, although few have shown brighter than the 25-year-old defender.

"Of course he deserves to play higher but Leicester are a big club as well, so it's him who has to decide and we will see".

"I know they have the ambition to go further the next season", Mahrez added. "Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is ideal for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding". United will be eager to at least close that gap, but City clearly aren't mucking about as they look to win back-to-back league titles for the first time in their history.

He said: "They (City) offered and Leicester rejected the offers, but it's the past".

Sacha Baron Cohen Teases Epic Political Trolling In "Who Is America" Segment
Set to premiere on the evening of June 15, Who Is America? has been making headlines in the week leading up to its release. He adds: "Happy shooting, kids".

But Mahrez, whose five-year deal at the Etihad is the sixth highest fee ever by an English club, says every club has "great" players and competition is "part of football". Now I'm here and I'm happy. I wanted to work under him.

"They have everything they need to succeed in the Champions League and that's where I want to play".

There's always been a sense that Mourinho has been unhappy with United's backline (and life in general, for that matter), and the report adds that Maguire's arrival could finally spell the end of the road for Chris Smalling or Phil Jones.

"The most important thing is I'm here".

NAIJ.com previously reported that Premier League giants, Manchester United, have emerged as favourites to sign Leicester defender Harry Maguire.

"I want to thank all of you for welcoming me to the club right from the start and continuing to give me the belief and encouragement to achieve what we have together".
