Riyad Mahrez is not 100% happy at Man City according to Algeria boss.
The 29-year old forward endured a somewhat frustrating campaign starting in only 11 of 21 Premier League games this season and is irritated with his current situation at the club.
Since leaving for Man City in 2018, the Algerian captain has scored 31 goals and made 31 assists in 119 games.
He has been in and out of Pep Guardiola’s squad a lot this season and he wants to play more regularly.

“Mahrez is probably not 100 per cent happy because he would like to play more with Manchester City. He’s a fighter who wants to play all the games for his team,” said Algerian boss Djamel Belmadi to DZ Foot.
“I can’t ask him to leave his club to play more at another, I’m not his agent. But, the most important thing is for him to maintain his fitness and to be ready for the national team’s next games.
“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.”
