Riyad Mahrez Looks to Secure Summer Exit to Serie A

Riyad Mahrez speaks out on joining Man City and his exile at Leicester

Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez's shock announcement that he has retired from football was a result of his Facebook account being hacked.

The problem here, as always, will be the cost of the operation, as Roma are limited financially compared to the likes of Manchester City, yet there's some (misplaced?) optimism from Corriere that this season might work in their favour.

"We will see in the summer if something comes but at the moment I am a Leicester City player and I am good here". Like I said, when my teammates and the club was behind me it was very easy to come back.

"To be honest, I don't want to talk about (the summer window)".

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

Despite his assurances, Leicester fans will still fear the winger has his heart set on a move to the Etihad, especially as he admitted he wanted to join City in the summer. If we start talking about this it's like coming back to the transfer window and now I'm moving forward, trying to give my best for the team.

'You know in football, players come and players leave, ' said the 27-year-old.

The Algerian global subsequently skipped training, effectively going on strike in protest at what he considered to be Leicester denying him a dream move he has been promised for several transfer windows. So my mind and my focus is on Leicester.

What Is International Women's Day Anyway?
All women and girls - rich or poor, urban or rural, educated or illiterate - must be able to access the health services equally. It's your day, Happy Women's Day! Our country will only achieve gender equality if we, its citizens, insist that it happens.

He has scored nine goals and added seven assists in only 25 games, but recent reports indicated that he wanted to hang up his boots.

"That is all I am focused on, so the transfer window, I don't want to talk about it".

"It was hard, I've always been in contact with the club".

Mahrez also confirmed that a post on his Facebook page this week saying he had retired was the work of hackers.

"I want to thank everybody for the kindness and support they have shown me in this incredible city".

He said: "I wasn't bothered".

"We are working with Facebook to have it removed". It won't affect me, so I don't know why they try to do that.
