Latest on the Mahrez situation, PFA chief comments, not easy
DATE: 07.02.2018 - THE CUNNING FOX - BLOG
Officially there are nothing said or
written about Riyad Mahrez and his current absence, Puel has said a
few words during press conferences, but so far this looks like a
very strange scenario
There are of course a lot of talk going on,
but the club has officially done "an ostrich" and not made any
single officially comments on the situation regarding the clubs best
and most valuable player.
To see this happening is sickening and shows a bit of "strange
management" from the club. Claude Puel has made a few comments about
the situation, but he is just trying to comment on a tricky
situation and keeping things as calm as he possibly can.
The problem is that everyone is talking about it, all the
speculations and waiting for the real reason why Mahrez is not
training or playing. He is not a stupid person and of course his way
of dealing with transfer windows looks a bit silly, but there must
be an explenation for it all.
As far as we can see, things are not complicated at all. Mahrez has
a contract which will run for another 2,5 years, Leicester City are
entitled to sell Mahrez to whatever price they like and don't have
to bow to anyone.
So why Mahrez is running around during the end of the transfer
windows playing hide and seek and not turning up for training and
are not interesting in playing, not officially on a sick leave and
just silence from those involved makes this strange.
We are talking Premier League, clubs and administrations of high
quality and professionalism, so how can this be going on. Mahrez
will not jeopardise his career and surely has a plan and if that is
not the case and the player is in no condition to play, then he is
But so far no one knows how the club is dealing
with this situation and reports from the press is that the player
will be fined, but Puel is talking about him being welcomed back,
and so far there are no official statement on the situation.
The PFA are so far,
according to BBC, not involved in the situation but has offered
to help. They also say that the club will show patience with Mahrez
and let this take the time needed to get the situation sorted out
and hopefully see Mahrez return to training.
The fact that the club officially has not yet made any comment about
the most talked topic in english football is strange and that is why
this sounds complicated and that we probably will get the truth
through the day Mahrez has left the club.
After reading about fans reactions there are no one in favour of
Mahrez at the moment, people react to this with a simple mind, you
are a player, you are under contract, the club is not selling for
the bids received and then this is very simple, get on with your job.
But to see no official statement, no talk from anyone and Puel just
waiting for the player to return, then you can't really understand
why a player would hurt himself and not play first team games of
football when selected.
Reports of the possible transfer to Manchester City firstly was one
involving a young unknown player, then today reports are that Yaya
Toure could have been part of a deal, and different talk comes to
