Javier Mascherano has lambasted one of the former members of the support staff of the Argentine senior team.

Carlos Dibos had recently stated that Mascherano along with some of his buddies has created a lobby in the Albiceleste camp and that lobby tries to stamp its authority on the team.

Dibos had also revealed that those few players who are part of the lobby don’t care about any protocols at all that the team management sets.

Javier Mascherano’s thigh injury comes at a disastrous moment

Barcelona has recently sustained a shocking 0-4 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of the Champions League 16 tie and now the Spanish club has to perform a miracle in order to reach the quarter-finals of the European competition.

No team has ever managed to come back from a 4 goal deficit in order to make it out of the knockout rounds of the Champions League but this is something that Barcelona will have to do if they want to make it into the next rounds of the elite tournament.

Javier Mascherano Expects Lionel Messi to Sign a New Contract

Barcelona midfielder Javier Mascherano believes that superstar Lionel Messi will sign a new contract and end the speculation about his future.

He also expects the Argentine to stay at the Camp Nou and end his career. Messi has entered into the last 18 months of his contract, which will expire in the summer of 2018. However, there have been rumours about Messi contemplating a new challenge for the first time in his career. After coming through the ranks at Barcelona, Messi became widely acknowledged as the best player in the history of the game. His five FIFA Ballon d’Or awards are testament to his success.

Javier Mascherano Is the New Carlos Puyol, Says Terry Gibson

Javier Mascherano’s recent performance in the 2-1 win over Sevilla has come under immense praise, as the Argentine midfielder for the Spanish club quickly recover from the 3-1 loss against Manchester City in the previous match.

Barcelona suffered a catastrophic collapse in the second half against the Premier League team in the Champions League. As a result, there was a danger of the team coming in with a hangover for the away trip to Sevilla. After conceding the opening goal after just 15 minutes, there was a danger of Barcelona suffering another mighty collapse.

Premier League Dream Team

The Premier League has had a number of stars over the years since its formation in 1992. Now boasting record revenues and television viewers, it is without doubt the most exciting football league in the world.

Stars from all over the continent have come to play and here’s a look at our favourite elevent over the past 24 years.


Javier Mascherano has spoken about his move to Barcelona so far, and how changing positions has affected his career at the Nou Camp.

For a player that never scored in almost 300 games, Mascherano holds so much power in the Barcelona set-up.

The Argentine has continually defied age and is an asset in the team. The 32-year old South American star is the ‘fix-in’ man in the Luis Enrique side. The player is comfortable in the middle, as a central defender and as a right back. He was on the four-man defence that thrashed Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League last week, and has been an excellent option since Sergi Roberto picked up his injury.


Juventus’ last transfer campaign didn’t work out as planned.

The Bianconeri needed a leader for their team’s midfield, and also for the dressing room, and Barcelona 32-year old Javier Mascherano was their main target. In June, the Jefecito was just one step away from the Serie A defending champions after his agent had met a couple of times with Juventus executives.


According to Edgardo Bauza, because Lionel Messi is the player the opposition teams feel the most threatened by while playing Argentina, they put extra attention on him and a couple of players always try to keep him surrounded which means his teammates get a bit of freedom and that they should take advantage of.

Ten weeks back, having remained inches away from Copa America trophy, Messi had hanged his Argentina kit out of anger and grief, but, the bizarre decision always had to be reconsidered at some point and the reconsideration resulted in an overturn with the legend agreeing to serve his country for a bit longer.


The new national team coach of Argentina Edgardo Bauza is reported to have travelled to Spain to meet with national team players.

The new manager is hoping to convince Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi to return to the national team side, ahead of their games in the World Cup qualifiers. The player said he will quit the national team side after the team lost to Chile for the second straight year at the Copa America. Messi lost his penalty kick and felt bad as he felt he had tried enough to get a trophy for his country. The 29-year old talent also added the excuse of the poor treatment meted out to the team by the Football Association as part of the reasons he wants to leave the team.
