Even as a Liverpool fan, there is nobody to compete with Mahrez.. none.. this was real honesty
what you doin here bro😂😂😂😂
@Sa Ber football is for everybody, so it's not hard to understand that an liverpool fan can comment on a man city player
Rare W from pool fans
Riyad has a crazy first touch
yeah i agree but if you watch all mancity matches all 90 minutes u would see sometimes hes too casul with the ball coming in and it goes past him for a throw in. you dont see that with other players much. as bernardo said taking the touch into space and utilising it to dribble or shoot is his best capability, but he needs to be a little more serious when hes just going to take the ball in and protect it
@kiwin Yeah, Mahrez only good at first touch and the others are terrible
@상안 yeah and the sky is green
@상안 wouldnt say terrible, hes great at passing and has good chemistry with kyle,foden and kdb, and also handles pressure well,almost wins a foul everytime. but yeah not very fast or good at pressing unlike others
As an American, I have friends who don't follow football and when I show them Riyad's touches they say the ball just loses its gravity and dies at his feet, its ridiculous.
That doesn’t make sense. If you lose gravity, the ball would hit his foot and float away. I think they mean it loses momentum as soon as it touches his feet.
@McfcMancs haha, Mr. Physic
Its like the ball loses his air pressure inside loses the bouncing ability xd not the gravity hahaha if it loses the gravity it would never stomps on the pitch. Rather than that it floats.
💯 ball knowledge 😂
Show them Ronaldinho
Bernardo Silva is probably the most consistent player across all the seasons he has been with City. He was heavily linked with a move away to Barcelona not so long ago. Never once did you hear about how unhappy he is whatsoever. Unbelievable player and great mentality.
Naa bro he isn't very consistent. Dipped in 19/20
Consistent? He dipped in 19/20, has dipped again this season and has been vocal about wanting to leave for almost 2 years
He will come back to Benfica, in like, 3 years max
Mahrez has the best 1st touch i've ever seen in my 50 years following football.
Did Bernatov play golf in his career?
@상안 bruh the only thing mahrez lacks in is physical and speed and pressing other than that he's valuable addition to the team the only player on the team that is a more intelligent passer than him is KDB .
He's got good play making assement a wicked shot in tight angles and is an excellent free kick taker plus he forces the adversary to commit fouls he does his job perfectly if it wasn't so MC would have released him already .
Have you seen some player called zinedine zidane?!
Berbatov was on the same level. Bergkamp was not too shabby either!
He's so right when it comes to Mahrez's first touch . It's pure art
Zidane was both Mahrez and Benzema's inspiration when it comes to first touch and both ended up having an amazing first touch...
@K Le Blanc Zinédine and mahrez are both Algerians btw
@Youcef Layadi They are both from Algerian descent indeed.
@Youcef Layadi DZZZZZZZZ
I swear, we've got a lot of technically gifted players.
That's the type of players pep likes to use in his system especially in the past season and this season, that's why he spent 100million on Jack grealish and let Sterling leave
Still zero UCL 😢
@Nel Ray £100 million for Jack are serious? No between him and SON I will choose the South Korean and his price is les than £60, I think the English players are overpriced like the French or the Brazilians, Argentinians ( Antony Ajax to Man U ,Pogba juventus to Man U, Neymar from barca to psg Hernandez from benfica to Chelsea kepa from Bilbao to Chelsea dembele dortmund to barca coutinho Liverpool to Barca) but African or an Asian player is underpriced mane from Southampton to Liverpool, Salah from Roma to Liverpool Etoo exchange with Ibra plus millions between barca and inter Milan and and and
@ما شاء الله الله أكبر Thank goodness u r not pep grealish is different to son pep don't want pacey wingers any more, am not saying jack is worth 100million just saying pep was willing to pay that much because of his qualities
@Nel Ray SON is an exemple but for me the price of Son is more than the price Pep payed for Jack nationality speak
Agree with his list. Specially for Mahrez's first touch, it is on another level, the best in the world.
The way he said " Kevin won't do it in a game" was hilarious 😂💙💙
yeah sure,,Kevin doesnt do such in games😅
Riyad Mahrez has the best first touch I've ever seen! He edges the other players I'd put on that list simply because of how often he does it. I feel like his teammates send him long balls just to watch him do it. lol
Zidane mate and mahrez.
@the S SS both have the same roots Algerian no wonder why they are the best
So you just watch Man City match
🤣🤣🤣 True, I concur.
Bernardo has a lot of interesting insights into the highest technical level of football. Most top players tend to use bland soundbites or clichés, but he appears to have the language to explain how things work technically. I would like to hear more from him about playing for Man City etc
When DeBruyne gets a B rating - you know that the team is full of crazy level technically gifted players.
I love this man's vibe and humour sm, pains me to think he might leave 💔
Riyad's first touch is on a whole different level , that I've never seen nowhere , he made it look too easy while it's not , it's just pure art ❤
@Dillon Krieger mahrez is on whole level he had almost 3 or 4 in a single game berbatov is good but mahrez is so good
@°SINATRA Mahrez isn't even close to Berbatov, what game do you City fans watch really? Zidane and Bergkamp too had a far superior first touch, Mahrez is very good but not comparable to them
Mahrez is so underrated, his first touch is magical and he's really one of the best wingers in the world ❤
Oh my God, stop using "underrated" for everything. The man plays for Man City, one of the best teams in the world if not the best team. He is all over ESclips and the Internet. Just because Kevin de Bruyne is more often in the spotlight, doesn't mean Mahrez is underrated.
@Miguel Rosado agreed, the word underrated is not applicable on mahrez. He is well-rated with the skills he has. Might not be the best player in our generation but the quality he has is gold.
mahrez first touch is just a piece of art 💙
He was so honest I think everyone agreed with him❤
Mahrez's First Touch 💯🔥🔥🔥
Every time i see " first touch " mahrez instantly comes in mind ..he's the best at it
Hahaaha soo accurate
Marcelo too he’s so good at the first touch
perhaps, you only have ever watched Manchester City's matches cuz there are several players with a far better touch. Riyad is good but nowhere good enough that be he known as a specialist of this technical skill. Zidane, Berbatov and Bergkamp all had a much better touch
@Ansh Arora Mahrez is the best at it not because i said so because it's a fact and many football experts analysts said the same thing perhaps u never seen mahrez play
Most honest analysis ever. Riyad's first touch is always a thing of beauty
Bernardo is very special. I think he's the one player Pep did his best to keep at the team. My guy changed his tactics for Bernardo, damn well worth it.
Bernardo will be a great manager 🔥
mahrez Best first touch in world 🔥
Ma sha ALLAAH Mahrez had a good first touch
Bernardo is the one of the humblest person...💙
Don't underestimate yourself Bernardo, you're top tier!!
How could you not love this guy.. Everything I watch of him is brilliant. They did Alvarez dirty btw
I could watch Mahrez first touch all day long. My favourite player to watch.
Gotta get as much Bernardo as we can before he’s gone 💙
Mahrez is a class first touch since his days at Leicester! His touch is sublime like Messi and Salah! But I think he is more silky than they are…
Not like Salah. Mahrez is superior to Salah
Mahrez's first touch is way better than Messi and Salah. He's on Berbatov or Bergkamp level.
Even as a rival fan I can appreciate what an unbelievable first touch Mahrez has. Controlling the ball like that with the studs as it drops down is not easy but he makes it look easy.
This man is so honest! Mahrez touch is unreal!
I understand that Cancelo is no longer a City player anymore but he had a very good 1st touch also, probably the closest one to Riyad's tbh.
but yeah I agree with Bernardo's List 💯
He is... Cancelo has been loaned out. He has to come back to us if bayern dont want to buy him. Plus there are talks in germany that he isnt happy there. (Surprise surprise) and Bayern dont want to buy him at the end of his loan agreement.
@Lucifer Beelzebub Moloch why was cancelo unhappy with city?
@nLtirogame time i think
"Sorry he's a goalkeeper ☠️"
Had me rolling 😭😂
Bernardo always nice to his teammates, even they're always bullying him 😂 in training session
I love his honesty ❤️
Mahrez has an insane first touch
For me mahrez got one of the best first touch in the history of football
no he doesn’t lol zidane, bergkam, insiesta , messi, neymar
@TruthMattersJoao Felix will join this list
@Amarelo 😂😂😂, he takes it personally
Oh come on…this has to be bias.
Riyad has a phenomenal touch. Hands down.
Mahrez first touch is up there with zidane and ronaldinho, absolutely effortless
no it's not. another day of clueless City fans overhyping their players. Mahrez's touch is good but nowhere near Zidane, Berbatov or Berkgamp
@Ansh AroraI hate people who think the greats can't be touched.
I'm terms of first touch, literally Mahrez is flawless. Others can only match him.
What a team you got! Best of luck for the last stretch of the season!
Mahrez is exceptional with his touch
Riyad first touch is just a piece of art
It doesn’t get any better than Mahrez’s first touch. Technically perfect.
Just love everytime Ederson be a GK,when he saved the ball,I feel proud for no reason 😅
Mahrez's first touch layoff for Vardy is one of the best PL assists ever
His list is actually spot on 👌🏻
Couldn't agree more. City are full first touch masters and Mahrez is just 🔝🔝 quality.
Phil and Mahrez's touches are very beautiful !!
Qué tipazo y qué jugador Bernardo, i love you man!
Never leave us Bernardo Run machine silva 💙
This has been the most honest and accurate ratings. Good job Bernardo
riyad's first touch reminds me of my time playing football. He is almost on the same level that i sued to be
Mahrez can always stop any ball motion.
I believe that is one of the most important skill for wingers as they often received cross.
The list is very accurate
Mahrez is really right up there with Neymar and Messi in his first touch
We really needed Haaland. After Foden's control Haaland would have rushed to push that ball in. And King Riyadh always have the best first touch😩😂😂❤️💙... Then Foden
Haaland would share C with Ederson
Or even D,he isn't technically gifted but a beast at everything else
Eventually, he will have to come back home.
@Essaghir Amine I agree Ederson might very well have a better first touch than him but "a beast at everything else" is an overstatement. For a guy his height he could be way better at headers. His passing abilities can be improved as well as many other aspect of his game..
@K Le Blanc The rate of missing a head kick is very low and he usually scores goals anyway what you want on guy everything must be goal?
@Naofumi Sama Regarding headers, i'd like for him to try to use his head instead of his foot when the ball is at head level. He doesn't trust enough his heading ability currently so he tries crazy jump kicks which as spectacular as they can be aren't as reliable as headers...
Mahrez first touch is simply unfathomable
Ryad has one of the best first touch in the world, not just from Manchester City.
Bernardo's such a nice guy😂😂
I love Bernardo, even though he may leave, I really hope he stays
Bernado such a funny guy 😂 love him
I like his honesty but I think his own first touch is up there with Mahrez and he knows. Bernardo is a genius of ball control.
Nah Bernardo really does a nice job here, not just the ranking but mainly describing and explaining them. Nice.
Mahrez is like Dennis Bergkamp the ice man he's control is out of this World🙌
Crazy that half these players can’t even get in the team right now. Shows how quality this team is
What a humble and nice man
Mahrez is something else 🔥🔥🔥
Bernardo Silva a very honest and humble man
Ma sha ALLAAH Mahrez had a good first touch
he explains very well the situations, and the difficulties, ace on the field.
Bernardo is just so sweet man.... I just love this guy.... All Man City players are so fking humble and feel so much like family.... I love how they've come to become a unison....
Riyad is the most gifted player when it comes to the first touch. He will be up there alongside Zidane, Bergkamp, Ronaldinho, Messi, Berbatov and Iniesta
Even when playing FIFA, Marhez still has the best first touch 🤣
Everyone knows Mahrez's genius in control the ball, the question is why he is not given a place on the field as he deserves
mahrez first touch here gave me goosebumps its perfect
Mahrez has the best touch in the entire history. He is just number one at it. 🔥⚽️
I would put Phil Foden up a little bit. Some of his touches have been sublime. Mahrez is top, though.
Mahrez's first touch is pure gold
Bernardo seems like such a nice lad 😊
Mahrez has the best touch in the entire history. He is just number one at it.
Riyad's first touches are something else
I am a Chelsea fan... B.Silva is so honest when it comes to this but I think Foden first touch is something else. He should have been there with Mahrez.
Mahrez has an incredible first touch and overall ability with the ball, but people saying he is the best EVER...come on guys
Bernardo and Riyad have to be together at the S tier, both have top tier first touch
Mahrez has the best touch in entire history. He is just number one at it.
City without guys like Bernardo and Riyad would be boring to watch for me. They both enjoy their game and bring that childish cheerful side to the game. 🎉
In foden's ball control against madrid, halaand would have been in a scoring position but in this case the player in the striker's position was just standing there.
protect him at all costs 😩
KDB is underrated his first touch is definitely tier A.
Bernardo didn't want to put himself on tier S where he belongs.
Bernardo, we love you. Please stay with the team for a long time. Fans from Thailand 🇹🇭😍⛵
Really nice video and i think Silva judge their touches based on his knowledge not based on the clips
One of the Classy midfielders of the modern football era, love him 👏🏼, he should stay in city
Fantastic player. I respect that he recognizes Mahrez first touch, Mahrez first touch is untouchable.
I'd like to see his opinion about Haaland first touch 🤔
You speak first touch, Riyad Mahrez follows automatically... He is the best no other can compare.
3:04 Noooo Bernardo this was hands down S tier ❤
Will miss you Silva we love you 🇵🇹❤️
I guess this was filmed before the current season, or does it only count when you stop the ball in order to do something else, and not when that first touch is a goal? 🙂
I do agree with his ranking!
Haaland best first touch. Always in the back of the net.
His explanations about the choices were even better then his choices
I'm a Chelsea fan but he's list is legit
