I think that he alluded to a situation like this in a press conference when he expressed concerns that Coutinho might not have been fully committed if he had not been granted a move. I see both sides of the Mahrez situation. He has given great service to Leicester who bought him for buttons. On the flip side, Leicester have made him the player that he is now and, of course, he has a contract to honour.
