Statistics of appearance and goals by the national team

Riyad Mahrez has scored 21 goals in 64 appearances

Style of Playing

Mahrez is a left-footed player who usually plays as a right-winger, which enables him to cut inside and shoot on goal with his stronger foot, or make deliveries into the centre circle; however, he is a versatile player who can play anywhere across the front line, in a central role as an attacking midfielder, as a winger on either flank or even as a false winger in the center of the field. His trickery, balance, turn of pace, flair, and dribbling skills distinguish him as a quick, creative, and technically gifted player.

Although he can score goals, his ability to create opportunities for his teammates makes him an excellent assist provider.

Despite his capacity, his penalty-shooting record has been inconsistent throughout his career.

He was known for his ball skills as a kid, but due to his slender nature, he was often underestimated.

When Quimper’s youth manager Ronan Salaün and his assistant Mickal Pellen first noticed Mahrez, they said he was skilled, a good set-piece taker, and possessed excellent technique and dribbling skills with both feet, but he was very slender and lacking in the tactical aspect of the game, as he had grown up playing street football; as a result, after a year, he was promoted to the first team.

When Steve Walsh, Leicester’s former head of recruitment, saw Mahrez play, he said: “Riyad was a little rough around the edges, but he had a great touch. He had the ability to kill the ball and get around people. His upbeat demeanor appealed to me. His decision-making wasn’t always the best, and he wasn’t always the best defensively, but it was clear that he had genuine talent.” Claudio Ranieri, Mahrez’s former Leicester manager, has been credited with assisting him in developing his tactical game.

Mahrez was able to improve his defensive skills and work rate, as well as his decision-making, while at Manchester City under manager Pep Guardiola. Mahrez has invented his own special skill move known as “La spéciale,” in which he fakes a shot with his left foot before flicking the ball behind his right foot and dribbling past his opponent.
