  • QUESTION TIME Riyad takes to the mic

"It's a club which wants to win the Champions League". The Champions League is for big clubs and Manchester City are a big club.

Maintaining City's domestic dominance will be top of Guardiola's list of priorities for the coming season - but improving our Champions League performance is also high on the boss' agenda. It is a goal.

Last season saw us fall at the quarter-final stage to Liverpool, despite finishing 25 points ahead of the Anfield side in the Premier League, a moment that represented the low point of our campaign.

The Blues missed the presence of Nemanja Matic in midfield after Chelsea FC made the controversial decision to sell the Serbia global in a £40m deal to their bitter rivals Manchester United last summer.

Mahrez, 27, arrives at the club following a failed move in January.

Mahrez temporarily stopped training after the Foxes refused to lower their reported £95million asking price for the Algerian and City pulled out of a potential deal.

Mahrez was keen to steer discussion away from that issue as he took questions from media. Now I'm here now and I'm happy. This is the past and we are looking forward now. "I am happy, I am starting a new challenge in my life".

Mahrez, though, said he did not wish to discuss the frustrations of the January transfer window and rather set his sights on what he can achieve at Manchester City.

"It means a lot for me".

'After City started winning every game you were like: "Ah, I think we're going to lose today, it's going to be hard".

"Maybe it could have happened sooner but it's the destiny, it happened like this", he said.

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

"Every club has great players and competition is part of the football". I didn't hesitate at all.

"After what they have done, it's fantastic work", he said. They broke all the records in the Premier League, which is unbelievable. "I am very confident about myself", he added.
