28-years-old Barcelona’s defender Javier Mascherano signs new contract with Barcelona and he is going to stay in La Liga until 2016. After Barcelona had approached him for this new deal, he accepted with that new contract.
He joined Barcelona on 2012 from last the time La Lige title winners Real Madrid. He entered Barcelona as a midfielder, but former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola used him for the centre back. He did play very well and he adopted that role. Guardiola has used him perfectly in new way and he also reacted well for that.
The special thing about him is he suits for all the roles in a team. He is such a flexible and all-rounder in the field so Barcelona wants to keep him. Barcelona have released this news on their official website. Mascherano will sign new deal in a few days.
He called as The Little Boss in Barcelona and he suited for that name. He has been played 97 matches for Barcelona as a key player in all major cups like La Liga, World Club Cup, Champions League and Kings Cup.
He joined Barcelona for 20 million euros, but with this new deal, he is expecting to get 90 to 100 million euros.
La Liga’s top scorer Lionel Messi has talked about Mascherano’s role in team and his contribution.
Messi told: “Mascherano has become a key player for us; since Guardiola played him in central defence I don’t think he has had a bad game,”
So we can expect more from this Argentina’s International player.
