Wenger questions Mahrez actions after failed Man City move

Riyad Mahrez

Leicester City manager Claude Puel has ruled Riyad Mahrez out of the Premier League game at Manchester City on Saturday and said that the midfielder needs to "get his head right".

Mahrez has refused to play or even train since the Foxes blocked a proposed move to City in the final hours of the January window, prompting the PFA to step in as mediators following a complete breakdown in his relationship with the club.

Mahrez netted 17 goals, provided 11 assists and was voted PFA Player of the Year as Leicester won the Premier League title in 2015-16.

"We offered our services last week to the club to try to help resolve it and I was told that they were hoping with the passage of time that it could be resolved, but I've not heard anything back from them since". "The best way is to come and to enjoy his football".

Ronald Koeman appointed coach of struggling Netherlands
A legend with the Netherlands national team, Koeman was capped 78 times as a player and won the European Championship in 1988. That has given him time to spend back home in the Netherlands , drawing hope from watching young players in the Eredivisie.

'Riyad is a magnificent player and he loves football. He loves his team-mates, and that's important. At some point (almost certainly in the summer), Mahrez will get his move away from the King Power Stadium and he'll find himself back in the Champions League, where a player of his caliber unquestionably belongs. It is important to all details remain inside the club and not in the public.

With Leicester and Mahrez's representatives set to hold discussions about the winger's future, the Professional Footballers' Association has offered to mediate discussions between the two parties.

British media reported friends of the player saying he has been "depressed" since the deal failed to go through.

And instead of trying to calm down the situation, the manager made sure to say that Mahrez deserves a better club: "He's going through a hard situation, he's an excellent player with a lot of talent and I think it's time to play in a great club". "Okazaki will not be available".
