Livid Algeria manager screams at 'enemy' reporter in furious rant

Livid Algeria manager screams at 'enemy' reporter in furious rant

The Leicester City star was interrupted by Madjer who took exception with the line of questioning from one of the journalists, labelling him as "the enemy of the national team".

Following a win over the Central African Republic in Tuesday's friendly, Madjer became angry when Mahrez, sitting alongside him at the postmatch news conference, was asked about the quality of the team's football. Mahrez's Leicester teammate, Islam Slimani, completed the victory with Algeria's third goal after Porto forward Yacine Brahimi scored twice.

As Mahrez opened his mouth to give an answer, his manager put a hand on his shoulder before calmly asking - in what translates to English as - 'Riyad, give me two seconds'.

Madjer - who was recently appointed following the sacking of the previous manager - described journalist Maamar Djebbour as the "enemy of the national team" in an incredible outburst as Mahrez sat there not knowing how to react. You are the enemy of the national team. "I don't respect you", the coach of one month yelled out. "Shut up! Retire and let the next generation do the job!"

Mahrez's shocked reaction says it all as Madjer tells the reporter to "shut up!" multiple times in a row.

Madjer took over as manager of the national team in October after Lucas Alcarez was sacked.

After making appearances at the 2010 and 2014 World Cups, Algeria failed to qualify for the 2018 tournament.

Madjer has since been condemned by the Association of Algerian Sports Journalists, which released a statement on Thursday (via International Sports Press Association) charging that Madjer "abused" his power.
