Riyad Mahrez’s celebration against Bournemouth shows he is committed to Leicester City, according to team captain Wes Morgan.
The 27-year-old earned a draw for the Foxes with a late free-kick after Joshua King scored the curtain-raiser from the penalty spot for the visitors. The forward then raced towards the home bench, sliding on his knees before being mobbed by his teammates.
In February, the winger failed to show up at the King Power Stadium for ten days following his botched move to Manchester United.
And the Foxes’ skipper has revealed that the celebration and the response show that the player is still valued at the club.
“Obviously, yes he is one of our players. He is no different really,” Morgan told Leicester Mercury.
“Anyone who scored that goal would have been the same celebrations.
“Obviously, it was Riyad and you got to see the response.
“But he has done everyone including the goalkeeper when he scored that goal which was great.”
Mahrez has now scored ten goals in all competitions this season and will be hoping to put up another impressive display when Leicester travel to the Hawthorns to take on West Bromwich Albion on March 10.
