Riyad Mahrez rejoins Leicester after self-imposed exile following failed move to City

Adjust Comment Print

Riyad Mahrez has returned to Leicester City training following his failed move to Manchester City, the club have confirmed.

Forward Shinji Okazaki faces a two-week absence with a knee injury.

"So, I think the natural outcome is that he will have his [new] contract and he will be a Manchester United player for years".

"Riyad remains a greatly valued member of Claude Puel's squad and is focused, together with his teammates, on achieving further success", Leicester said.

"I think it is important always to keep a clear and a good focus on our play - not have bad feelings about revenge or other things".

And, while City will host Leicester on Saturday evening, Mahrez will play no part in the fixture.

"For Mahrez I'm guessing that's the pinnacle for his type of player and the way that he wants to play football".
