Riyad Mahrez says he signed a new Leicester contract to “continue the adventure” with the Premier League champions.
Last season’s PFA Player of the Year ended speculation over his future by signing a new four-year deal this week.
He told LCFC TV: “I’m happy to continue my adventure with Leicester City. It’s been a pleasure to be here for the last two-and-a-half years, so I’m going to keep going here.
“I live day after day. I’ve achieved good things with this club. All the players have said congratulations. It’s good – they are happy, and it is good to keep all the players in the team.”
“It’s important because last season we achieved the best thing we could in England. We’ve done an amazing season and it was important to keep the players to keep the same spirit as well.
“Our football has a lot of energy, so if all the players keep their mentalities right, I think we can do something good this year. I’m very happy to be here and I know the club is happy to sign me, so I thank them as well.”
Mahrez’s goal could not prevent a 2-1 defeat at Hull on the opening day, and Arsenal are this weekend’s visitors to the King Power Stadium.
