Riyad Mahrez’s facebook account was hacked yesterday with a post appearing to suggest the Algerian’s retirement on health grounds.
A picture of Mahrez was uploaded 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.”
However, the retiring statement has been proved false as it has been confirmed that his Facebook account was hacked.
Yesterday’s post was Mahrez’s first Facebook post since February 24, when he posted, “Ready to play #LCFC #premierleague #kingpowerstadium.”
