Mascherano wants to leave England, not Liverpool

Javier Mascherano has revealed his intention to leave Liverpool is not due to a problem with the club but simply a personal desire to have a change from the English lifestyle.

• Liverpool strike Poulsen deal
• West Brom hopeful over Ngog
• Play Premier League fantasy

Mascherano, 26, has made no secret of his wish to leave Anfield, with Inter Milan and Barcelona reportedly interested in acquiring his services. But speaking after Argentina's 1-0 win over Republic of Ireland, Mascherano insisted he has no issue with the Merseyside club - he just wants a new challenge.

"The only thing I want to say is I don't have nothing against the Liverpool supporters, the Liverpool people," he told Sky Sports. "My problem is not to play for Liverpool. I'm very proud to play for Liverpool. It's another thing.

"I said to him (new Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson) that maybe for my life I prefer to change the country, not to change the club - that is the fact. Sometimes you can see all the things that the papers or the press say, but at the end the only thing I can say is thank you to everyone in Liverpool because they supported me all the time, from the beginning until now.''
