​Algeria coach urges Mahrez to return to Leicester training

Algeria coach Rabah Madjer has urged Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez to return to training.

The 26 year old handed in a transfer request in a bid to push through a move to Manchester City which eventually stalled through the clubs failing to agree a fee.

"Mahrez currently deserves better than Leicester. But we must not forget that it was Leicester who put him on the right track," Madjer told Goal.

"I think a serious conversation with his board is needed. He wants to go to a bigger club in the English league. I do not know what really happened about his transfer.

"Me, I advise him to resume training and work hard, even if the transfer has not been resolved."
