Riyad Mahrez unconcerned by Manchester City competition: 'I never thought about that'

Man Utd-target Maguire ‘deserves’ a big club – Mahrez

Riyad Mahrez has no doubts over his ability to see off fierce competition and earn a place in Manchester City's star-studded starting XI.

Pep Guardiola's side announced Mahrez as their first new arrival for the coming season earlier this week, and the Algerian will reportedly receive a weekly wage of £200 000 (R3.56 million), according to the Daily Mirror.

"At all the big clubs there are great players", Mahrez said.

'It's a club that wants to win this type of trophy, the Champions League is for big clubs and City is a big club'.

Despite City spending £60m on the 27-year-old, questions have been asked about where the former Leicester forward will fit into Pep Guardiola's plans.

"They have everything to try to win the Champions League".

Mahrez, who made 179 appearances for Leicester, scoring 48 times, admits there is a fine array of attacking talent already at City, including such as Belgian Kevin de Bruyne, Argentinian Sergio Aguero, German Leroy Sane and others, but he isn't losing any sleep over where he slots in. "Competition is part of football and it is good because everyone can improve".

"I am very confident in myself and I hope to help the team to improve".
