Man City signing Mahrez pens open letter to Leicester fans

Manchester City signing Riyad Mahrez has penned an open letter to Leicester City fans.

The Algerian completed his £60m move to Man City on Wednesday.

He will go down in folklore at the King Power after his role in Leicester's title success.

"To all Leicester fans, we have made some amazing memories and history together," said Mahrez. "Winning the Premiership against all odds was just something else and none of this would have been possible without your extraordinary support for me and the team.

"I want to thank all of you for welcoming me to the club right from the start and continuing to give me the belief and encouragement to achieve what we have together.

"I would also like to thank my team-mates, staff and everyone at the club who have become a big part of my life in the last few years.

"Now it's time for me to move on and try to build on what I have developed here, but I will always remember my time at the club with great joy and pride. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you."
