Leicester hero Mahrez happy with Bournemouth goal: A tough few weeks for me

Riyad Mahrez says he's feeling happier at Leicester City.

Mahrez popped up with a late equaliser for Saturday's draw with Bournemouth.

The Algeria midfielder said afterwards: "We changed shape after Daniel Amartey's injury and we had many chances in the second half: in this kind of match we needed a goal and I took the chance, we deserved at least one point and it was good for us not to lose.

"We did not give up until the end, this is our team, we've always been like that, we knew we would have scored and we did not give up. Obviously the goal is good for me, after what happened in the last weeks: it was difficult to come back, I think I did well and it's a good thing to score and help the team."
