Man City refute Leicester claims over Riyad Mahrez

Manchester City have responded to Claude Puel's claims that they showed a lack of respect during the Riyad Mahrez saga.

The Premier League leaders were looking to push a £60 million deal through before the deadline, but were met by stubborn resistance from the Foxes - despite Mahrez asking for a move.

"To make solicitation just one or two days before the end of the transfer window, I don't know if it's normal".

"He enjoys to play and train with his team mates and he is at a good level with no problem".

The midfielder was back in the Leicester squad last weekend against Manchester City after a 10-day period of leave from the club following the breakdown of a proposed move to join Pep Guardiola's team. We need to manage better and we need also perhaps some respect from others.

Mahrez returned to action for Leicester when he came on as a substitute in the 62nd minute of the 5-1 defeat at Manchester City on Saturday, a day after ending his strike and reporting for training. I can't suffer this situation. It was important to keep united with the players and the team - this is the most important thing.

Puel said: "It was important if he had good fitness he came with us to stop all this situation".

The Algerian looks set to return to Puel's starting line-up for Friday's fifth-round FA Cup tie against Sheffield United after a three-game absence.

"Riyad gave his feeling in the dressing room, to give some explanation to his team-mates and the staff. The story is behind him, all the players want to move on".
