Riyad Mahrez broke a Didier Drogba record with latest Man City title win

Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez, this weekend, etched his name indellibly into the record books of English football.

This comes after Pep Guardiola’s City, of course, clinched their latest Premier League title.

Owing to Arsenal’s shock defeat at the hands of Nottingham Forest on Saturday, Mikel Arteta’s troops can no longer mathematically catch the table-topping Citizens.

City, as a result, have been crowned England’s finest for the third time on the trot, and fifth time in six seasons.

And, as alluded to above, this has, in turn, seen a key member of the Sky Blues’ squad secure for himself a special piece of history.

Wide-man Riyad Mahrez, remarkably, has now racked up five titles in England’s top-flight.

This comes owing to a quartet with current employers Manchester City, and, prior, one with Leicester City.

The Algerian, as a result, has broken his tie with Chelsea icon Didier Drogba, to establish himself as the African player with the most Premier League titles in history:
