The message 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." The message, if true, would be a bolt from the blue with the forward starring for the Foxes at the weekend. Algerian Mahrez scored a late free-kick to earn Claude Puel's side a draw at home to Bournemouth. He also appeared in training earlier on Tuesday, seemingly getting through the session unscathed. The message did not appear on any of Mahrez's other social media accounts.
In a highly suspicious Facebook post, Riyad Mahrez appears to have announced his retirement from football https://t.co/gOmfEBzpZc— Goal (@goal) March 7, 2018
There's no way Mahrez has been hacked, pretending to retire is just not something a hacker would decide to do. Hopefully he's alright pic.twitter.com/b93t535ph0— Liam ? (@TheMainMane2206) March 7, 2018
