'Hurt' Mahrez to miss Swansea clash

Why Riyad Mahrez would be a perfect signing for Chelsea

It was hard also for Riyad and we have to understand all the parts: for me, for the squad, for the player.

The Algeria global did not turn up to training on Thursday and Friday, after his proposed move to Manchester City did not materialise on Deadline Day.

It was gathered that Mahrez has been left "depressed" by Leicester's decision not to accept City's final offer for him, with the Foxes valuing the Algeria global closer to £95m.

Riyad Mahrez will be missing from Leicester's squad at the weekend.

Puel insists there is a way back for the Algeria global, who played a starring role in Leicester's shock Premier League title triumph two years ago.

Mahrez reportedly failed to turn up for training again on Thursday so it's impossible to see him lining up against Swansea on Saturday, and a starting XI without Mahrez is undoubtedly a weaker one.

"As a club, we took this decision for the good of Leicester", said Puel.

"Riyad is not available for this game".

The test was meant to take place during the morning shift change , in order to be more confusing and keep workers on their toes. There was also a critical miscommunication between supervisors when they took over from one another at 8am on that fateful day.

"I think the players know it will be hard sometimes for Riyad and we have a fantastic group, squad, all the players have a fantastic relationship and understanding between themselves".

'It's a tough situation for us and we need manage it but after this transfer window it is important to move on and keep our focus on the game. "We will deal with his side and the club, not in public".

And it quickly emerged that they wanted a player to be thrown into the bargain to make up part of that valuation.

He joined Leicester from French side Le Harve in January 2014 and has since scored 44 goals in 165 appearances, helping the Foxes win promotion back to the top-flight and the Premier League title.

"We need to stay united after all this, it is a situation we need to manage but other things will stay inside the club".

"I hope Riyad can clear his head and come back with us because he's a valuable player for us".

The Algeria worldwide 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.

On top of that, Mahrez has a Premier League winner's medal, PFA Players of the Year award and African Player of the Year award in his trophy cabinet.
