Leicester City's Claude Puel gives Riyad Mahrez update

'Even now, when Leicester look at the bigger picture, surely they will have to concede that Riyad Mahrez has been an unbelievably good player for them... but it's time to let him fulfil his potential'.

The Algerian winger missed training on Thursday after seeing a deal to join Man City, which was worth a reported £65 million, fail to come to fruition.

He tried to force the issue by submitting a transfer request only to see a final deadline day bid of around £60m fail to shift the Midlands club.

'Riyad will not be available for this game, ' said Puel at his Friday press conference.

"Just about Riyad, I think the club took this decision in the best interests of Leicester. I hope he can come back happy and find a smile with his team-mates". "It's of course always a hard situation and we will have to manage this situation with Riyad", Puel said. "It will be dealt with inside the club and not in public".

Mahrez has been missing for four days, including Wednesday night's 2-1 defeat at Everton with sources close to him claiming he's 'depressed'.

Puel insists it is only a matter of time before Mahrez, who still has two-and-a-half years left on his contract at the King Power Stadium, returns to training and begins to "enjoy his football" again. I hope Riyad can clear his head and come back with us as he is a valuable player for us and crucial in our play.

"We need to stay united after all this".

"He would have made [Manchester] City better and stronger", Murphy said, "I think with the injuries they've got he'd have gone straight in [to the team]". Like professionals, we have to keep our focus. That's the most important thing.
