Craig Bellamy believes Pep Guardiola could take Riyad Mahrez to the next level

Former Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy believes Pep Guardiola could transform Riyad Mahrez into a much better player than he was at Leicester City. The Algeria international joined the Premier League champions for a club-record £60m fee last month and he has since shown glimpses of his old self in pre-season.

Speaking to Star Sports, Bellamy hailed Mahrez as a ‘top player’ and he is intrigued to see how he develops under the tutelage of Guardiola, he said: “He’s been a top player, he’s done a great job at Leicester. It’s a great time for him to move on. He’s just another option. I know it’s difficult obviously because of the money that they’ve spent but it was going to take that type of money to get him out of there. I’m interested to see how he improves Mahrez. The best thing with Guardiola, he improves players, he makes them better.”

Craig Bellamy provides transfer advice for Liverpool

Speaking on Sky Sports, Bellamy said: “You have to be optimistic about Liverpool next year. They have one or two players coming in. They need one or two players more. There is every chance they can compete with Man City. They have the firepower. They have the manager in Jurgen Klopp. They are a serious threat.”
Liverpool did not fare well against the top-six teams on the road last season but their overall performance against Manchester City was impressive to say the least. The Reds encountered the Citizens on four occasions in all competitions last term and out of those, they managed to outclass Pep Guardiola’s side on three occasions with top-notch performances throughout the team.
