Mahrez account was hacked, Leicester confirm

Riyad Mahrez insisted he faced no hostility from his Leicester team-mates following his failed move to Manchester City in the January transfer window.

It was the Algerian's first goal since January's transfer saga over his protracted move to Manchester City, which saw the player stay away from the club for ten days and miss matches against Everton and Swansea. I have always been in contact with the club.

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

And speaking to Sky Sports today he couldn't hide his disappointment at missing out on move to the Etihad Stadium. It's behind me. If we start talking about this, it's like coming back to this transfer window. Everything is good, so we will see in the summer if things come.

"It was hard but I spoke with the players, I spoke with the manager, I spoke with everyone".

Mahrez also indicated that he could be sold be Leicester this summer.

"I want to thank everybody for the kindness and support they have shown me in this incredible city, you will be always in my heart".


The Algerian worldwide subsequently skipped training, effectively going on strike in protest at what he considered to be Leicester denying him a dream move he has been promised for several transfer windows.

"In football players come, players leave", he said.

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

The 27-year-old's contract with Leicester runs until 2020 and despite his obvious desire to part ways with the Premier League club the Foxes have already proved that they are unwilling to budge on their valuation of the Algerian global. "So I don't want talk about the transfer window". "We had some discussions and we moved on". The club handled it very well.

He said: "I wasn't bothered".

Mahrez also cleared up the confusion over a message which appeared on his Facebook page late on Tuesday night claiming he was quitting football on medical advice and confirmed it was a hoax and his account had been hacked.
