Riyad Mahrez ‘deserves better’ than Leicester, says Algeria coach Rabah Madjer

Riyad Mahrez “deserves better” than Leicester, according to Algeria coach Rabah Madjer, who has also urged the winger to return to training.

The 26-year-old did not turn up for training on Thursday or Friday last week and missed the defeat at Everton and Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Swansea after his proposed move to Manchester City collapsed on Deadline Day.

Mahrez handed in a transfer request in a bid to push through a move to the Etihad and Sky Sports News understands he was left “depressed” by Leicester’s decision not to accept City’s final player-plus-cash offer worth an estimated £65m.

Madjer understands Mahrez wants to play for a “bigger club” but has advised him to return to training with his Leicester team-mates.

“Mahrez currently deserves better than Leicester. But we must not forget that it was Leicester who put him on the right track,” Madjer told Goal.
