It must be said that this news is a blow for Riyad Mahrez and his teammates who do not hide their sorrow not to be able to participate in the next two Champions Leagues next season and even a relegation to the fourth division.
Despite this difficult moment that the club is currently going through, Riyad Mahrez could console himself with this statement by Samuel Eto’o about him.
The former captain of the Indomitable Lions said that Riyad Mahrez is among the best players in the world today. To this end, he deserves to win the African Golden Ball and even that of Europe.
Eto’o explained it to the media El Araby , relayed by the official site of Manchester City. “He is one of the great players in world football today. We are very likely to have it in our continent. I really hope that he will not only dream of being the best African player, but also of the European Ballon d’Or because he has all the qualities to be so. ” he said.
Compliments that should delight the native of Sarcelles, who has scored 7 goals and delivered 7 assists in 21 Premier League games this season.
