Speaking during the interview the Algerian said: “What if I want to go higher? I do not see what is higher [than Manchester City].
“To try another championship [elsewhere]? No. I really love England and English football is wonderful. I don’t want to leave. I still have goals to pursue here.
“When you see Guardiola wants you, it’s flattering. The acclimatisation here wasn’t easy, but our relationship today, everyone knows [is great].”
