Mascherano plays down Spanish interest


Recommended Posts



Liverpool's Javier Mascherano has moved to deny speculation linking him with a move to Spain.


The midfielder is reportedly a transfer target for several La Liga clubs but the Argentine international insists that he is focused on the Reds' season.


"I have no idea if a Spanish team want me," he told Spanish newspaper AS.


"I'm just focused on having a good season with Liverpool and then we will see."


Mascherano also spoke of Liverpool's title challenge and the upcoming Champions League tie with Real Madrid.


"For sure we have been struggling recently, but it's been in a while since we have been fighting for the title, and at the moment we are second," he added.


"And we still have to play Manchester United. This year we have won the important games."


"Madrid are Madrid, and they are always hard to beat. The truth is that at the moment we have the same style of football.


"Madrid have improved defensively under Juande Ramos and they have become a much more solid side. Besides, from the back to the attack they have an excellent squad.


"It's going to be a very tight knock-out stage, with a narrow result."
