Riyad Mahrez knows Manchester City are ready for this match and have what it takes to go all the way. Speaking prior to the huge match v PSG, Mahrez spoke about the match, how this is what football is about and much more.

Let’s check it out-

“When you are a young boy you dream about these stages,”

“You play football for these types of games and stages. I knew when I signed that with this team and manager we would arrive here.

“But you have to show you deserve to be in the final. It is done by showing your personality in the big games and the big moment.

“Now, here we are and we have to step up as always, like we play in the Premier League, like in the Carabao Cup, like in the last game against Aston Villa.”

“We’re not here to make up the numbers in the semis. We are here to win,

“We have always been confident in our game. It is true that perhaps we are better this year. We are in good form approaching the end of the season.

“Ultimately, we always want to play our game, showing lots of character and that we are here to win.”

Mahrez should start v Paris and he will be a key cog in City’s plan if they are to advance. It is good to see his mentality is strong heading in to this massive match.
