Riyad Mahrez isn’t considering retiring anytime sooner.
The Algerian international has outlined his desire to retire at Manchester City after signing a contract extension this July.
There had been rumours of him joining PSG or Chelsea but the contract extension will keep him at the club until the summer of 2025.
The 31-year-old explains his aspirations to end his career in Guardiola’s side.
“I definitely want to finish my career at City and play as long as I can. I think I can still play for a long time. We’ll see what the future holds after football,” he said.
“I don’t know. I’m still thinking. I love football so it’ll be difficult to come out of it.”
“Yeah, I always wanted to be successful in football, that was my only target,” Mahrez continued.
“Some people want to be successful in a few things, for me the only thing was football. I left school at 17 and went 100% on football, I tried to give it my all and fortunately I made it.
“It wasn’t easy, it still isn’t, but you have to make a lot of sacrifices. At the end, when you do everything, it’s your destiny.”
