Claude Puel insists the Riyad Mahrez saga was put to bed once and for all with the reception the midfielder received from the Leicester fans on Friday night during their 1-0 win over Sheffield United in the FA Cup.
The Leicester boss Puel said: “It’s behind us. Riyad came back with high quality and it is a good feeling for us of course. It was good support from the fans to Riyad and important to remain a good feeling for the future.
“I said before it was important to remain united after this situation but it was good in the end to see the good feeling. The most important thing was to win the game and to see again Jamie and Riyad play together is a good feeling. Riyad was a little frustrated at the end of the game because he wanted to score, but that is good.”
“Congratulations to Sheffield United – they played very well with good organisation and a strong defence and it was difficult for us to find space. But I was happy about Jamie because he had had two or three good chances and he kept good focus and concentration for the next chance.
“It was a good feeling for him to score as it is important for striker to score.”
