CLAUDIO RANIERI: BETTER FOR RIYAD MAHREZ TO STAY WITH LEICESTER CITY

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri insists that Riyad Mahrez should stay with the Premier League champions for the good of his own career.

The Algerian has been strongly linked with a move away from the club, with the likes of Arsenal, Everton and Chelsea mentioned as possible destinations for the 2015/16 PFA Players’ Player of the Season.

Ranieri has maintained that Mahrez will not be leaving the Foxes, but he recently explained his viewpoint on the player, arguing that a big-money move could be detrimental to his career.

“I speak often with him and say stay with us, it’s much better for your future, I think he is an intelligent man and he will stay,” Ranieri told Sky Sports News HQ.

“We support him very well, this is important, when you change teams maybe you don’t find team-mates who help you at the same level.
