New Manchester City Signing Suffers Ankle Injury
Manchester City’s new signing, Riyad Mahrez has left the club’s pre-season tour of the US to return to Manchester.
Reports from the UK suggests that the Algerian international returned to Manchester wearing a protective boot on his left ankle.
Riyad Mahrez was taken off early during the first half of City’s 3-2 win over Bayern Munich in their third pre-season encounter played on Sunday.
City paid a club-record £60milllion fee to sign Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City earlier this summer, but he’s now a serious doubt for the start of the English Premier League season, which kicks off on August 8.
The Premier League Champions will clash with Chelsea in the Community Shield on Sunday and Mahrez has now emerged as an early doubt for Pep Guardiola’s men.
