Mahrez account was hacked, Leicester confirm

Riyad Mahrez says talk of a move to Manchester City in the January transfer window is now behind him

"In football players come, players leave, I'm not saying I'm coming or going", he added, "We always talk between me and the club, everything is good, so we will see in the summer if things come".

Mahrez has so far bagged nine goals in 27 Premier League appearances this term.

Mahrez denied going on strike after the disappointment of the failed move, but concedes he should have handled things better when he took a leave of absence from the Leicester squad.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Mahrez is keen on forcing through a move to Roma this summer, but it is thought that the two clubs are yet to agree a deal for the 27-year-old.

"Now I'm moving forward, trying to give my best for the team, and that's most important".

"It was not a genuine post and we have been working with Facebook to get it removed", he said.The post has clearly now been deleted.Leicester ran an element on Mahrez on their site on Wednesday taking a gander at the effect of the player this season, recommending the Facebook post was a trick.




Mahrez said: "I wasn't bothered".

Leicester have failed to win any of their past five Premier League games since Mahrez's proposed move to City fell through, but coach Claude Puel has insisted the skilful winger conducted himself professionally throughout. At the moment I'm a Leicester player."Mahrez did defend his decision to take time away from the club, but claims City would be a "good move" for any player if they were to reignite their interest at the end of the season". It was hard but I was always in contact with the club.

"I've been with these team-mates for four years now". Everyone was okay, everyone was good.

"It was hard, but I spoke with the players, I spoke with the manager, I spoke with everyone and everyone was OK, everyone was good", he said. They know me very well. "It happens and we move on".

Mahrez also brushed off the hoax retirement announcement posted on his Facebook page this week.
