Javier Mascherano Laments Liverpool 'Lies'

New Barcelona signing Javier Mascherano reveals his own version of events on his controversial departure from Liverpool.

Argentine midfielder Javier Mascherano has launched a thinly veiled attack on former club  Liverpool after completing his "chance in a lifetime" move to Spanish champions Barcelona.

The 26-year-old sealed a four-year deal with the Spanish champions for what is believed to be an initial fee of 21 million, while the Catalan giants are said to have slapped a 90 million buyout clause on the Argentina captain.

"I would be a fool to think I'm going to play all games. We must respect people who are doing so well. In my position there are three world champions who have won everything," he is quoted as saying by Sport.

Quotes in the Guardian revealed his version of events on his departure from Anfield, as he hit back at former manager Roy Hodgson's assertion that he was "selfish" in his actions in the last week by declaring that he sought a move last year but Xabi Alonso beat him to it by joining Real Madrid.

"Roy Hodgson knows the truth. This is a happy moment for me so now is not the time to say it, but a lot of lies have been told about me and I will respond to them," he explained.

"Last year Liverpool would not let me leave. There was no way they would sell me. They had Xabi Alonso and me, and they would only let Xabi leave.

"I was disappointed not to be able to sign [for Barcelona] last season. When the best club in the world calls you, then it is something that you want to happen. I have signed for the only club who really wanted me. In no moment did I ever think that Inter was a possibility. Rafa valued me and perhaps that is why people started saying that I could go there but this is the only club that pushed to sign me," he added before declaring that he is not like predecessor Yaya Toure, but is willing to play anywhere for Barcelona.
"For me it is a dream to grow, learn and enjoy playing with them. I do not come here on vacation but to play. This opportunity is a once in a lifetime. I come to add to the team. I will train to be ready when called upon, I shall do my best not to have the absence of those who usually play noticed."

"Toure is a great player, who has left his mark on this club. I do not come to replace him, but to do my job the best I can. I have been hired by what I have done in recent years. I'm not trying to be like Toure because I'm not him but I can give other things, neither better nor worse but different things.

"I'm a defensive midfielder but I can do other things. During my career I have played in other positions, at Liverpool, with Argentina and at River [Plate]. Whenever I am needed, if the coach considers it appropriate, I'll do good for the team and will abide by the orders."

Despite leaving in such controversial circumstances, Mascherano declared that he hopes to see Liverpool back in Europe's top flight soon as he still has a fondness for the fans on Merseyside.

"I hope they get back into the Champions League as soon as possible. I still have a lot of affection for the fans of the club and I always will," he noted.(goal.com)
