Riyad Mahrez’s future

One of the topics discussed on BBC radio on Monday night was the surprise result which began the new Premier League season: Hull 2 – Leicester 1.

Few had expected Hull to do anything in the game, however the Tigers rightly claimed all three points over the reigning EPL champs in an excellent performance.

When dissecting the game on radio, former Leicester defender Gerry Taggart was hugely critical of Riyad Mahrez, who scored from the spot in the match.

‘Mahrez’s heart is not in it’

According to Taggart, Leicester’s performance against Hull City was “a surprise”. He also expressed his view that Mahrez’s heart is “not in it”.

He also stressed that if Arsenal posted a 50 million bid for the Algerian winger, the Foxes should jump all over such an offer.

Whether Arsenal will table such a bid remains the big question.
