Mahrez Admits Regret For Man City Winter Transfer Saga

The former PFA Player of the Year Winner Riyad Mahrez of Leicester city has finally opened up about his reactions post the Manchester City saga in January this year. The player got angry when his club refused to let him go to Manchester City when the league leaders came calling for his services in the transfer window. The Algeria international immediately stopped training with the first team and was quoted to having said that, “I will not play for them ever again.” Mahrez felt that the club did not do him justice by allowing him his dream move to a massive club that has the opportunity to lift three trophies this season under Pep. His self-imposed exile lasted for a little more than a week as he eventually came to his senses and returned to play for the club that made him the player he is today. He regrets having made that decision of taking some time off because it represented a lack of professionalism which could potentially harm his move to another club in the future. He concedes that it was a bad period for him and that he has now gotten that behind him and if focused on giving his all for Leicester. Who knows what could happen in the summer? He could eventually go to City and increase the competition for Sterling on the right.
