Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez has appeared to announce his retirement from football via a highly suspicious Facebook post.
A message emerged via Mahrez’s verified Facebook page late on Tuesday, suggesting the Algeria international was retiring.
A picture of Mahrez was uploaded to the popular social media platform, with an accompanying caption, which read: “After the last consultation with many doctors, I’ve decided to stay away from football. As my time as a football player comes to an end , I would like to say few words. I want to thank everybody for the kindness and support they have shown me in this incredible city , you will be always in my heart .”
And only 5 hours earlier on Tuesday via Twitter, Mahrez retweeted a video from Leicester City, which showed him scoring against Bournemouth in the Premier League, while he tweeted “never give up” on 4th March.
