Riyad Mahrez’s incredible decision that made him a world class player
Manchester City defeated PSG 2-0 (4-1 on aggregate) in the second leg of UEFA Champions League semi final. Riyad Mahrez scored a brace in the game to help Man City reach final.
Mahrez was amazing in both the legs of the semi final. He scored a stunning free kick in the first leg and then two great goals in the second leg.
But before moving for Man City, Mahrez took a decision that changed his whole career. Let us tell you the what he did in 2010.
In 2010, Mahrez refused a PSG offer and joined Le Havre, because there would have more game time. 11 years later, Mahrez scored 3 goals in 2 UCL semi final games, eliminates PSG and lead Man City to the first UCL final ever.
He chose the right decision and made it to be one of the best right wingers in world football.
Guardiola praised Man City
“What we have done the last four years has been incredible,” Pep said.
“The Champions League is the hardest and getting to the final was the hardest thing for us to achieve.
“We deserve to be there for everything we have done at the club in the past four or five years.
“I want to thank the former players who helped take us to another level — Joe Hart, Vincent Kompany and David Silva. This is because of them, they helped take us to another level.

“I also want to thank the owner, the Chairman and the staff at the club. This club is about all the people that work behind the scenes, the ground staff working at halftime, it’s not just about money. If you want to think that then you are wrong.”
