“I didn’t make a difference as fast as they thought I was going to,” admitted Riyad Mahrez opening up on his early fighting in Manchester City

The 29-year-old fell short of the required standard during his first few months at the Etihad, he admitted but says that he gradually built up his confidence back up after a “difficult” settlement in time.

“I didn’t make a difference as fast as they thought I’d make,” Mahrez said to Sky Sports.

“So certainly they have no time to give me time because we’re 20 top players.”

“I was on the bench and the other players were playing, so I had a hard time coming back. Then, more to the end of the season I came back, I played well and I started this season differently.”

“I was performing now, when he played me, so the confidence is here.”

At the beginning of the month ahead of the June 17 Premier League restart Mahrez and the majority of the City squad started full-contact practices.

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
