WATCH: Happy birthday, Riyad Mahrez


The CAF African Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez celebrates his 26th birthday today.

The Algerian attacker enjoyed a glorious 2016 with Leicester City, where he won the Premier League title in what was known as the ‘dream season’.

And, if that was not enough, he was also crowned the BBC African Footballer of the Year and the PFA Player of the Year.

Mahrez scored 17 goals in his 37 league appearances for the Foxes last season and has found the back of the net three times so far this season.
