Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has heaped praises on Algerian star Riyad Mahrez after his impressive display against Paris Saint Germain in their Champions League semi final clash on Tuesday.
Mahrez’s stunning freekick helped Manchester City with a 2-1 victory at Parc des Princes in the first leg. The winger went on to score two goal one in each half at the Etihad in the second leg.
It hasn’t always been easy for Mahrez in his Manchester City career.
“Riyad is an extraordinary player – big talent, huge quality especially in the big games he is always ready” Guardiola commented.
“We know his quality quite well. He is a fantastic player.”
“He loves it and enjoys it. He made a good goal, the first one was right foot and the finish for the second, three goals over the tie. He deserves big compliments.
