Riyad Mahrez: Did you see Man City star make Leicester owner tribute after goal vs Spurs?

Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez opened the scoring for Manchester City against Tottenham at Wembley.

Raheem Sterling breezed past Kieran Trippier and cut the ball back for Mahrez to finish past Hugo Lloris.

Mahrez made the £60m switch to City from Leicester – where he won the Premier League title in 2016 – in the summer.

The world of football was sent into shock on Saturday evening after the news that Leicester owner Mr Srivaddhanaprabha’s helicopter crashed after the club’s 1-1 draw with West Ham.

The aircraft lost control and plummeted into the staff car park where it burst into flames.

Leicester released a statement on Sunday night sadly announcing that all five people on board – including Mr Srivaddhanaprabha – lost their life.

Tributes have poured in for Mr Srivaddhanaprabha who was at the heart of the Foxes’ rise to the Premier League and unforgettable title triumph.

Mahrez was at the heart of their success that season and won PFA Player of the Year.

And after scoring against Tottenham at Wembley, Mahrez made another classy tribute.

After embracing his team mates, the Algerian pointed to the sky in reference to Mr Srivaddhanaprabha.

Mahrez had paid tribute to late Thai business on Instagram on Sunday.

“One of the best people I’ve ever met. I will never forget you. Rest in Peace Vichai,” he had written.

Besides giving Pep Guardiola’s side the lead, it was a goal that would have meant so much more to Mahrez.

Leicester players joined the Srivaddhanaprabha family at the King Power Stadium today to pay tribute to their owner.

They then took a moment to reflect outside the stadium where fans have been laying flowers to pay their respects.
