Riyad Mahrez goes awol after Man City transfer flops

Clement enjoyed a superb start to life in Swansea but few things went his way this season before he was sacked in December

When news broke on Tuesday that Manchester City had either lodged a bid for Riyad Mahrez, or fully meant to do so, it came as a surprise. "My preoccupation is about my available players and to keep them in a positive attitude and to continue this good work".

Despite British media reports that some Leicester players disapproved of Mahrez's public show of defiance, Maguire said there was no ill feeling from his team mates towards the player who is likely to face a heavy fine for missing training.

Mahrez was a key cog in the Leicester machine as the "Fearless Foxes" stormed to the 2015-16 Premier League title. "It's of course always a hard situation and we will have to manage this situation with Riyad", Puel said.

Claude Puel's men fell to a disappointing 2-1 defeat at the hands of Everton during the week, bringing to an end a streak of 6 games without a loss across all competitions.

Mahrez's stellar displays reminded the footballing world of the importance of widemen with his breaks on the counter, dribbling and finishing making him a class apart.




Leicester omitted midfielder Riyad Mahrez after the Algerian missed training following his abortive attempt to join Manchester City although his replacement Kelechi Iheanacho soon impressed by setting up Jamie Vardy for his sixth goal in nine games after 17 minutes.

The story of a player being denied a move to a bigger team is not a new one, but as Leicester are now discovering, the fallout can be all too real.

.

"After some time, he will come back with us", he said, per Hetherington.

"Leicester are not going to finish in the top four and they are not going to go down, so I don't understand why they were not prepared to let him go for £60m". Sky claims Mahrez is "depressed" about Leicester's decision not to accept City's final bid, and has informed his club that "he is not strong enough to play football at the moment".

"It's for him, his agent and the club to deal with, but we would welcome him back".
