Mahrez must clear head before making Leicester return: Puel

Mahrez must clear head before making Leicester return: Puel

As per reports, Leicester City wanted Manchester City forward Patrick Roberts as part of a £95million deal that would have seen Riyad Mahrez move to the Etihad Stadium on transfer deadline day.

While Iheanacho was substituted later in the second half, his compatriot, Ndidi, was in action throughout the game as Leicester held on to the point.

He's also been ruled out of Saturday's game against Swansea City, as confirmed by manager Claude Puel. I think the club took this decision in the best interests of Leicester.

"We need to respect this decision".

The Algerian star is reportedly depressed and frustrated after Leicester City rebuffed a big-money offer for the player from Manchester City just before the close of the January transfer window.

'It's a hard situation.

"We played well against a tough team that made it hard to find space, but we needed to score more [in the] first half". It is important to move on and to keep our focus on the pitch.

'His team-mates wait for Riyad to come back. It was an opportunity for him.

Having dominated the first half, Leicester found themselves pegged back as Swansea pressed for a second, although Diabate fired narrowly wide from 10 yards out after Vardy counter-attacked down the right flank.

It is understood that the 26-year-old Algeria global is feeling so low that he is not in the right frame of mind to play.

City tabled multipled unsuccessful bids for the 26-year-old this week as Pep Guardiola sought to strengthen his squad after the serious injury suffered by Leroy Sane at the weekend.

Leicester thought that it was only fair Mahrez cost City £80 million seeing as Van Dijk and Coutinho commanded such vast transfer fees.

"A move to City would nearly guarantee him winning more trophies, possibly including the Champions League, and a chance to play for Pep Guardiola, arguably the best coach on the planet".
