Danny Murphy says Mahrez has outgrown Leicester

Danny Murphy says Mahrez has outgrown Leicester

Riyad Mahrez will not play in Leicester's Premier League match against Swansea today after missing training for a fourth consecutive day.

"He's going to go in the summer isn't he, I'm afraid, for Leicester supporters".

Leicester manager Claude Puel admitted in his press conference yesterday that the club will have to deal with the damaging fallout from Manchester City's failed attempt to sign the winger on Wednesday's transfer deadline day.

'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'.

"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]". It is a situation we need to manage, but all the details will stay inside the club. "It's also important to manage this with calm inside the club".

The Algeria global handed in a transfer request in a bid to force through a transfer, sources said, and he was left out of the squad for Wednesday's defeat at Everton. We have to move forward and to have focus on the football. I hope Riyad can clear his head, and come back with us.

"He is their friend and I think all the staff and all the players will help him to come back with a good mentality and a positive attitude and to enjoy his football with his team-mates".

Mahrez submitted a transfer request at the start of the week, and was initially linked to Arsenal, before City became the front runners for his signature.
