After the match, Guardiola stated that he was in love with Mahrez:
I love Riyadh [Mahrez]; He is an incredible player and person. today [Sunday], we thought we needed a different quality in advance. We’ll need him until the end,” Guardiola said She said.
“I am really happy with the way we played. We played well [in the] The first half, it was tough 10 minutes into the second half, but that’s normal when you concede. “They have quality and they have a lot of threats, but we did well. It’s football, these things happen. How many managers say, ‘In the last minutes, we can’t concede,’ we can concede until the referee blows the whistle.”

Kevin De Bruyne on Miss Riyad Mahrez
Guardiola’s statements about Mahrez, of course, come after the Algerian failed to win the Manchester City match at the last minute.
The scorer broke through and chose to shoot rather than pass the ball to Kevin De Bruyne who looked much better.
Speaking after the match, the KDB didn’t seem too upset with Mahrez’s choice: “[Mahrez] Chose Chip Ranger. If that happened, it would be a great goal, but it didn’t happen and that could happen.”
