IMG 20240527 WA0019

Riyad Mahrez, the Algerian winger renowned for his dazzling dribbles and remarkable playmaking abilities, has capped off his debut season in the Saudi Pro League by finishing as the league’s top assist provider. Despite missing the final matchday due to a knee injury, Mahrez’s impressive tally of 13 assists in 32 matches secured his position at the summit of the assist rankings.

Mahrez’s contributions on the field for Al-Ahli have been pivotal, demonstrating his exceptional talent and vision.

His 13 assists placed him just ahead of Al-Hilal’s Rubén Neves, who finished with 12 assists, and Cristiano Ronaldo of Al Nassr, who managed 11.

This achievement underscores Mahrez’s ability to adapt and excel in a new league, further solidifying his reputation as one of football’s premier playmakers.

In addition to his playmaking prowess, Mahrez also found the back of the net 11 times this season, bringing his total goal involvements to 24.

This dual threat of scoring and assisting highlights his all-around offensive capabilities and his importance to Al-Ahli’s attacking strategies.

Such a feat is particularly notable given that Mahrez is not a traditional striker, yet he has managed to make a significant impact in front of goal.

The 2019 African Cup of Nations champion’s success in the Saudi Pro League follows an illustrious career in Europe, where he achieved significant accolades with Leicester City and Manchester City.

His transition to Saudi football has been seamless, and his performances have been instrumental in raising the profile and competitive level of the league.

Mahrez’s ability to consistently deliver high-quality assists and score goals has made him a standout player in the Saudi Pro League, earning him plaudits from fans and pundits alike.

As Riyad Mahrez continues to shine in Saudi Arabia, his achievements this season reflect his enduring class and adaptability.

His role as a leading figure in the league is set to inspire many aspiring footballers and entertain fans worldwide, ensuring that his legacy continues to grow both on and off the pitch.
