The importane of Mahrez, Riyad so vital for the team

DATE: 03.01.2018 - THE CUNNING FOX - BLOG

 

To find a player to replace Riyad Mahrez will be very difficult, and it could be a nightmare for Claude Puel, we have looked at the career stats of the Algerian international

Mahrez joined Leicester City back in January 2014, coming from French club Le Havre for a nominal fee of £ 400 000. He was close to his 23 year birthday, being born on 21 February 1991.

Riyad made his debut on 25 January the same year in a 2-0 win v. Middlesbrough. He came on for Lloyd Dyer and that in a way became a key moment in the lives of the two flank midfielders, with Dyer leaving after that great promotional season.

He made four sub appearances before getting a starting position by Nigel Pearson. Riyad had allready scored his first goal for the club, that came in the local clash with Nottingham Forest.

Mahrez started with a promotion in his first season, Leicester was back in the best party after 10 years out of the top flight. He was part of the first team squad and made his debut in the first game of the season, his first goal was scored in a 2-2 draw with Burnley later in October.

Despite a troubled first half of the Premier League season, Riyad started to flourish and a key player in "the great escape" scoring both goals in the 2-0 win over Southampton on 9 May.

We all remember his rise to fame and being the vital injection together with Jamie Vardy and N'Golo Kantè when City went for a "great escape" to "league winners" in just a season. Mahrez shined like a World star footballer.

Speculation of a departure has since been hanging over his shoulders, and we all know how he feels himself, and at the age of 26 really seeing his clock thicking for a major move to one of the giant clubs in football.

Teams such as Barcelona, Man Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea are all being linked with Riyad, and to keep him over this window will of course be what all City fans would hope, but we are not certain at all, if a bid of £ 40 million is received he will most certainly be gone.

He showed greatness also last season, but tcf believe the player was heavilly distracted with all the speculations, he has since Claude Puel took charge again showed the greatness we all loved to see on regular basis two season ago, what a perfect player.
