Riyad Mahrez Asked Mitchel Bakker "Who Even Is This Guy"

*SINCE PUBLICATION, IT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY RMCSPORT THAT KYLE WALKER IS THE PLAYER WHO SPOKE TO BAKKER*

Riyad Mahrez completely dismissed Mitchel Bakker during Manchester City's win over PSG on Wednesday night, doing his best Conor McGregor impression at the same time.

Mahrez has been in brilliant for City this season and he made the difference in the Champions League semi final first leg in Paris earlier this week.

The Algerian was quite fortunate but his free kick in the 71st minute completed the comeback on the night and gave City a 2-1 lead going into next week's second leg.

Even with the Premier League side's two late goals, the main talking point from the second half was the sending off for Idrissa Gueye, after midfielder's awful challenge on Ilkay Gundogan.

Whilst the midfielder was down, there was a conflab between players from each side and Mahrez ended the man who'd been marking him all 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?"

Mahrez's put down is reminiscent of one of Conor McGregor's most famous put downs, when he completely destroyed Jeremy Stephens.

At the press conference for UFC 205 in 2016 the Irishman, who was due to fight Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight title, was asked who his toughest opponent would be.

Stephens tried to steal some of the Notorious' limelight by shouting from the back of the press conference to say, "Right here - the hardest hitting 145-pound, the real hardest hitting 145er right here. This guy TKOs people. When I knock people out, they don't fucking move."

Without any hesitation at all, McGregor turned around and exclaimed 'who the f**k is that guy?' instantly dismissing the American as a nobody.

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.
