Masch Wasn’t in the Right Frame of Mind

The title was basically the quote of Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson on Javier Mascherano.

According to Hodgson, “Javier Mascherano is not in the right frame of mind to play the game because his head has obviously been turned by the offer from Barcelona,”

Mascherano refused to play against Manchester City. Most likely he was swayed by Barcelona’s bid to acquire the defensive midfielder. But the amount was way below the valuation of around 25M pounds.

Barcelona is every footballer’s dream, apart from Real Madrid.

If I were Hodgson, I would not let him play for the next two years if he continues in his refusal to play, also provided that the valuation has not met yet.
