‘It’s a club full of footballers and Wags, which even some of Riyad’s team-mates go to. Rita was actually on a night out with Riyad’s sisters who she really gets on with.

‘And they did not appear to be happy with what was going on. One even seemed to go and get Rita, to take her away from ­Deontay, who was of course trying to keep her with him.

Reports of the pair’s encounter at LIv’s nightclub quickly made their way back to the Algerian winger, who is a Muslim non-drinker who eschews the typical footballer lifestyle. 

Sources said he was ‘devastated’ to hear how Wilder, the WBC champ and father-of-eight who is known for his freakish punching power, seemed to hit it off with Rita so quickly.

According to the source, Wilder spotted Rita from across the club and had one of his entourage invite her over to the table to meet him.

She knew who he was but wasn’t starstruck and soon the pair were enjoying an in-depth conversation, in full view of Mahrez’s teammates and other revellers.  

‘Word soon got back to Riyad about what had happened. He knew about it by early the next morning. Riyad was shocked and a bit upset about it — and he couldn’t get his head around what was going on,’ the source added.
