Riyad Mahrez, who was the first name of the team sheet at Leicester City, has not got quite the same sort of treatment at his new club Manchester City and that’s understandable too.
There is a possibility that Mahrez might entertain the thought of returning to the King Power Stadium again where he made his name as a Footballer, but the question is what would be the response of the Foxes supporters if that indeed happens, if they would be welcoming at all?
Leicestershire Live talked to a few of the Foxes supporters the other day and they had mixed reactions. Most of them had no issues about having Mahrez back, but what they are seeking from Mahrez is the 100% commitment and not that he comes here and plays with the sole purpose of inviting some huge bids from a big club.
The Foxes supporters were also of the view that what’s happening with Mahrez at City is something that was always on the cards. There was never a guarantee that he was going to be in their starting XI on a regular basis. At Leicester though, his spot was almost guaranteed. But he was hell bent on leaving and this is what he got.
Overall, what can be concluded from the comments of the Foxes supporters is that they are pretty aware of Mahrez’s Football ability, but they want a little bit of change in his attitude.
