Mahrez - We know finishing top four will not happen again for Leicester @ 1:01 am
On Jan 11
Algerian international and recently crowned African Player of the Year 2016, Riyad Mahrez, has admitted that Premier League Champions, Leicester City are practically out of this season’s title race, and are now working hard to remain in the League.
Leicester are currently 15th in the league table trailing leaders Chelsea by 28 points with 18 games to go.
And the reigning Africa Player of the Year has been left to rue his side’s poor run in the current campaign.
He told reporters, “Obviously, what happened last season was amazing.
“We know and knew the top four was not going to happen again for a small team like Leicester City.
“Yet, we knew it was not going to be like last season because of the Uefa Champions League, more games.
“We’ve not done too badly because we qualified for the Champions League’s knockout stages, and of course the league is not very good.
“At the moment in the dressing room, it is normal. Even two years ago, we were fighting to stay in the league and it was the same mentality last season when we won,” he continued.
“I think it is the same mentality and we just have to keep working hard to see what we can do this time.”
