Mahrez To Pay N95M Fine After Missing Leicester Training

Riyad Mahrez has gone a third day without reporting to Leicester in a move that is expected to see him fined two weeks' wages.
The Algerian winger is said to have missed training on Thursday having failed to show at Belvoir Drive on Tuesday or travel with the squad for Wednesday's game at Everton.

Leicester’s coaching staff had to scramble after he didn’t show up for the club’s English Premier League game. In the end, the club had to change tactics.

Mahrez was desperate to force through a transfer to Manchester City and has told Leicester he is not in the right frame of mind having seen the deal collapse.

And according to European media, Leicester do not know where Mahrez is, and it is causing problems at the club.

Reports also say that the Foxes were forced to train a man down after Mahrez went AWOL on Thursday morning.

And now, Leicester are set to dock Mahrez two weeks wages which will amount to £200,000 (N95 million) for his behaviour.

The Algerian submitted a transfer request on Wednesday after Pep Guardiola launched a £65million bid for his signature.

However, Leicester had no plans to cash in and ended up demanding closer to £100m.

City pulled the plug on the deal, with Guardiola admitting he’d rather wait until the summer and land Mahrez for a cheaper fee.

But that hasn’t stopped the player from claiming he’s been left “very depressed” by Leicester’s decision.
