Leicester's Riyad Mahrez: Joining Man City would have been 'a good move'


Mahrez was absent from training during the final stages of the transfer window. It's behind me and if we start talking about this it's like coming back to this transfer window.

"My mind and my focus is on Leicester", he said.

"As my time as a football player comes to an end I would like to say few words".

"I'm not saying I'm going to leave".

'To be honest, everyone has been very good and it's in the past now.

There have been conflicting reports as to whether City will try again, with some stating Guardiola still has Mahrez in his plans and others claiming the City boss wasn't impressed by the player's behaviour after his move collapsed.

Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez has spoken to the press for the first time since a proposed move to Manchester City in January failed to go through.

"I was away from here because I needed some time to think, it was a hard situation", he told Sky Sports News. We've moved on now. It was hard but I was always in contact with the club.

"It was hard, but I spoke with the players, I spoke with the manager, I spoke with everyone and everyone was OK, everyone was good", he said.

At that time I thought it was the best thing to do. Like I said, when my teammates and the club was behind me it was very easy to come back. The club handled it very well.

The Italian newspaper state his performances will have "negatively impacted" his value, although we're not too sure about that, and that, with three years left on his contract, Leicester won't be in a position to ask for the same amount of money they did in the summer. They know me very well.

He said: "I wasn't bothered".

Mahrez also brushed off the hoax retirement announcement posted on his Facebook page this week. "I think everyone knew it had been hacked".
