It is not the first time he is complaining in public about the way his club treated him right after helping them to an unbelievable Premier League title, and chances are, this won’t be the last one either.
Riyad Mahrez talked to the Daily Mail, and… went back to what happened in the summer of 2016, right after Leicester City had shocked the whole… football planet lifting the PL trophy.
They said: ‘Yes, there will be no problems if something comes up’, but behind the scenes they were blocking me – talking to clubs but just not wanting to sell me
the Algeria international said, referring to the promise he was given by Leicester officials that if a proper offer arrived, they would seriously consider it, and wouldn’t stand in his way of fulfilling his dream of playing for a really big club.
Mahrez talked about N’Golo Kante as well, explaining how come the Frenchman was allowed to leave, only he, from all key Leicester players almost a year and a half ago.
N’Golo had a clause and when he left they stopped those clauses. They said they would never give one to anyone after that
But I’m confident. Contract or no contract, I believe I will get to the top. When you have quality, and show it, there’s no problem
the Algerian also said, confident that sooner or later he’ll move on to a much bigger club.
