Leicester City deny Riyad Mahrez has retired after weird Facebook post

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

"If we start talking about this it's like coming back to this transfer window and now I'm looking forward and trying to give my best for the team and that's the most important".

Mahrez's 97th-minute free-kick rescued a point for Leicester against Bournemouth last weekend, and the Algeria worldwide insists his mind is "focused on Leicester" and their remaining fixtures.

"In football players come, players leave", he said.

"I am not saying I am going to leave or going to go".

"Manchester City is a good move for everyone but it is the past".

Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez is keen on forcing through a move to Italian side Roma during the summer window, according to a report in the press.

And Mahrez says the saga has not caused any tension within the club, even if he declined to confirm he would not seek another move in the summer.

"I was away from here because I needed some time to think, it was a hard situation", Mahrez told Sky Sports. We've moved on now. "It was a hard situation but we moved on, everyone - the club, players, me".

Serena Williams returns to tennis after child birth
Sharapova won Indian Wells in 2006 and 2013, but because of her suspension, she hasn't been able to play here since 2015. Like I said, you have to give Serena time before betting any serious money on her match wise or to win tournaments.

"It was hard but I spoke with the players, I spoke with the manager, I spoke with everyone".

"I want to thank everybody for the kindness and support they have shown me in this incredible city, you will be always in my heart".

However, it is understood the so-called "announcement", which did not appear on the 27-year-old's Instagram or Twitter pages, did not come from the player and Leicester are working with Facebook to have the post removed.

"To be honest the club handled it very good as well".

Mahrez was coy and diplomatic when posed the question about his summer plans.

"It wasn't awkward because I've been with these teammates for four years now so I know them very well, they know me very well as well".

He said: "I wasn't bothered".
