Xavi Hernández has taken advantage of the visit of the FC Barcelona to Qatar to concede during the last days several interviews in key Barça, speaking so much of the Barcelona team as of some of his ex mates. In one of these last interviews, collected by the newspaper "Sport", the ancient captain of the Barcelona has undone in praises to Javier Mascherano.

"When it saw to play to Masche in the Liverpool or in the Argentinian Selection darse me that it was a player with a lot of character, but when it arrived to the Barcelona surprised me no only his capacity of leadership, but also what infects", has remembered in the first place the one of Terrassa.

"When it commits an error, Mascherano happens the week got angry"

And it has stood out the capacity of self-criticism of Mascherano, that always looks for to give the maximum on the lawn. "It is a person very self-criticism. When it commits an error, by minimum that was, see it that it happens all a week got angry".

"Has a capacity of brutal self-criticism, perhaps until exaggerated. Sometimes autoflagela too much, included by things of the team in which he has not had at all that see. Surely it was this power of criticism and those win to surpass what carried it to surrender so many years in the maximum level".

Mascherano, a player always in tension

One of the elements that do to improve to Mascherano is the tension with which always plays, according to Xavi Hernández, so much in the FC Barcelona as in the selection of Argentina. "It is accustomed to the criticism. It looks what happens him in his Selection. Anybody speaks that Argentina arrives to all the finals and with Mascherano like one of the symbols... And in the club: to be central in the Barcelona have to be very intelligent. Masche Reads the game to perfection and commits very few errors", recognises Xavi.

Without place to doubts Mascherano, that landed in summer of 2010 to the FC Barcelona, has been one of the most profitable signings of the Barcelona club in the last times. It suffices with seeing the performance that follows offering still now, exceeded already the treintena of age.
