Riyad Mahrez Asked Mitchel Bakker “Who Even Is This Guy”



Riyad Mahrez completely dismissed Mitchel Bakker throughout Manchester City’s triumph over PSG on Wednesday night, performing his best Conor McGregor impression in precisely the exact same moment.

Mahrez was in vibrant for City this year and he also made the difference at the Champions League semi final first leg at Paris earlier this week.

The Algerian was rather fortunate however his free kick in the 71st minute finished the comeback at night and also gave City a 2-1 lead heading into the next week’s second leg.

In spite of all the Premier League side’s two late objectives, the most important talking point in the second half was that the sending off for Idrissa Gueye, following midfielder’s dreadful struggle on Ilkay Gundogan.

Considering that the midfielder was down, there was a conflab involving players from every side and Mahrez stopped the guy who had been marking him through the night, Bakker.

During the exchange, the former Leicester City winger said, “You go over there you,” trying to send him away from the referee, before adding, “Who even is this guy?”

With no hesitation in any way, McGregor turned about and exclaimed’who the f**k is that man?’ McGregor’s words did not discriminate, as he moved on to become a double weight UFC winner at UFC 205 whilst Stephens dropped his struggle to Frankie Edgar.

In the media conference for UFC 205 at 2016 that the Irishman, who had been expected to struggle Eddie Alvarez for its lightweight title, was asked who his toughest competitor would be.

Mahrez will be expecting that similar occurs on Tuesday night in Manchester, and he will help take City to their first Champions League last, in Istanbul later this season. Stephens attempted to sneak some of their Notorious’ limelight by crying from the back of the press conference to state “Right here – the toughest hitting 145-pound, the actual toughest hitting 145er directly here. This man TKOs people. While I knock out people, they do not fu***ng move.”

McGregor’s words didn’t backfire, as he went on to become a dual weight UFC champion at UFC 205 whilst Stephens lost his fight to Frankie Edgar.

Mahrez will be hoping that similar happens on Tuesday night in Manchester, and he helps take City to their first ever Champions League final, in Istanbul later this month.
