Algerian international winger, Riyad Mahrez, has tied the knot for the second time, this time with English model, Taylor Ward, following his divorce from his first wife, Rita Johal, with whom he was married for six years.
The former Manchester City forward married Ward, who he shares a daughter with, in a private ceremony at The Londoner Hotel located in Leicester Square on September 4.
Mahrez and his partner had announced their engagement in June 2021, before getting married in a Muslim ceremony in January 2022.
The private wedding had only had close friends and family members in attendance.
A third ceremony is reportedly scheduled for later this year.
The Algerian star, who signed a three-year contract with Saudi Pro League side, Al Ahli worth £30 million in the last transfer window, and his ex-wife with whom he had two children, separated in 2020 after she filed for divorce citing the player’s move from Leicester City to Manchester City in 2018.
Meanwhile, Mahrez joined up with the Algeria National Team as the Fennec Foxes faced Tanzania in their Africa Cup of Nations final qualifying round tie, having already booked a place in the competition that will be hosted by Ivory Coast in January next year.
