Mahrez happy in Leicester: Algerian forward has no plans to leave

Riyad Mahrez, Leicester City midfielder, has been called a king by manager, Claudio Ranieri after he chose to stay with the club.

Mahrez has scored 13 goals for Leicester this season, helping them to first place in time for Christmas.

His performance has drawn interest from top clubs, but Mahrez will not be leaving the club.

Ranieri said: “He wants to stay with us, we want to keep him and that’s it.

“He has to improve and when he improves, the team improves and when that happens why would he want to go away? He’s a king here.

“He can grow with the team because if you stay at the bottom and fight no-one knows you but now everybody is talking about you and that is maybe a bit of pressure.

“You have to manage this kind of pressure. It’s important for him to manage this stress. It’s important he understands on the pitch is one thing and the TVs and newspapers are another thing.”
