Claude Puel is not plaeased with Manchester City over the Riyad Mahrez saga.
“There’s no revenge about Manchester City, or the club,” said the Frenchman. “We are professionals without feelings like that. I think it is important to keep it clear and always have a good focus about our play.
“All the bad feelings about revenge or other things, there’s none.
“My squad has a fantastic attitude, they have strength together. It is a good quality, the spirit of the team.
“We can play against Manchester City with a fantastic spirit and collective play and make a difference and I hope we will see this on Saturday.”
It means Mahrez will miss a third Premier League game. Asked if he felt City were partly to blame for the situation, Guardiola replied: “I don’t think so.
“Leicester came to pick up Kelechi [Iheanacho], we did it. In all transfers, the clubs call the clubs, it’s simple like that.
“After that we are not involved in absolutely anything. It’s a decision for the player and the club, not Manchester City.”
