Riyad Mahrez, the winger of the Manchester City must not have driver License almost two months from now. Because he was notified of driving too fast. 

Sun Sports reports that Mahrez was caught by cameras on the M-6 motorway. And caught him hitting the accelerator at 120 mph (about 192 km/h), exceeding the legal limit a lot.

That led the judge to convict the 30-year-old. They face a fine of £2,500, including a 56-day ban on sitting behind the wheel. 

It’s an Algerian star’s repeated mistake for being polite on the pitch. But when you put your foot on the accelerator, a racer’s spirit takes over. Because back in 2016, when wearing a uniform, Leicester had driven too fast. 

Riyadh races at 77 miles per hour. in a 50 mile-per-hour speed limit zone Coupled with the inability to clarify three questions from the police who called for a ticket. As a result, he was banned from driving for half a year and fined £900.

Furthermore, Mahrez was also given six points on his licence. This saw him cross the 12-point threshold that triggers a ban, due to the fact he already had nine points.

He was gifted a BMW i8 worth £100,000 by Leicester’s late owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha after helping the club to win the Premier League.
