Mahrez isn't happy at Man City, says Algeria boss

Riyad Mahrez Man City 2020-21

Riyad Mahrez "isn't happy" at Manchester City, according to Algeria boss Djamel Belmadi.

The 29-year-old has contributed 31 goals and 31 assists to the Blues' cause while also winning the Premier League and FA Cup, along with the Carabao Cup twice, but has found himself in and out of Pep Guardiola's starting XI.

The City boss has only started Mahrez in 10 of his team's 20 top-flight fixtures this season, and he was an unused substitute during their 1-0 win over Sheffield United at the weekend.

Belmadi claims the winger is frustrated with his current situation in Manchester, and is concerned that a lack of regular minutes could end up affecting his ability to perform at international level.

The Algerianis confident that Mahrez can turn his situation around, though, as he told DZ Foot:“Mahrez isn’t happy in Manchester because he doesn’t play often, and he’s a fighter who wants to play all the games for his team.

"I can’t ask him to leave his club to play more in another, I’m not his agent, but the most important thing is for him to keep his fitness and to be ready for the next games of the national team.

“He’s our captain. I understand the fear of the fans, but, in my view, he’s got the ability to bounce back once again. I trust him."

Mahrez will be available for selection again when City travel to Turf Moor to take on Burnley on Wednesday night.

Guardiola's men can restore their three-point lead at the top of the Premier League table over arch-rivals Manchester United if they beat the Clarets, who are currently down in 15th.

City are being tipped to win their fifth domestic crown come May after an impressive eight-match winning run, but their manager played down talk of another title before their latest victory.

“One month ago we were not even in the Champions League qualification for next season - now we are the only favourites for the Premier League," said Guardiola.
