But the club have now announced that Mahrez is back training, saying in a statement: "Riyad Mahrez has today (Friday) returned to training with the Leicester City squad".

Riyad Mahrez believes that Leicester City broke a promise over his failed transfer to Manchester City, a report claims.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola dismissed former Manchester United captain Gary Neville's fleeting coaching career and sarcastically labelled him a "prestigious pundit" in response to criticism from the Sky Sports analyst.

The tempo of the game was frantic from the very beginning, but City managed to control the possession well with their slick passing moves and intelligent off the ball running.

Aguero demolished Leicester in the second half at Eastlands on Saturday as the Premier League leaders moved another step closer to the title. Leicester were sloppy in their own half, which lead to a poor clearance from goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

Leicester forward Vardy latched onto a loose ball before beating City defender Aymeric Laporte for pace and finished emphatically in the far corner.

Pep Guardiola's side romped to a 5-1 win against Leicester at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday with Aguero scoring four times in the second half, but De Bruyne took numerous plaudits for pulling the strings in midfield and setting up City's first three goals.

The Foxes went into the half-time break level at the Etihad, but were blown away by a four-goal blitz from Sergio Aguero in the second half, with Puel admitting it had been a hard evening for his side.

"I think it is important always to keep a clear and a good focus on our play - not have bad feelings about revenge or other things".

Puel accepted his player had faced a "difficult situation" and vowed the club would "help him come back with a smile".

Puel said: "We need to manage this calmly".

After Raheem Sterling and Jamie Vardy exchanged first-half goals, Aguero took over and effectively ended the game with two strikes within eight minutes after the break. "But we know it's a great team".
