Just over four years after arriving at FC Barcelona, Javier Mascherano has reached 200 official appearances for the club. Mascherano has been a key figure for all four men who have coached him since he joined the club. From Pep Guardiola to Tito Vilanova, then Tata Martino, and now Luis Enrique, everyone has put a high value on Mascherano's ability and leadership.
Whether playing as a central defender or midfielder, Mascherano has been a regular starter since the 2010/11 season. Since then he has played 121 league games, 43 in the Champions League, 27 in the Spanish Cup, 6 in the Spanish Super Cup, 1 in the European Super Cup and 2 in the Club World Cup.
This season, Mascherano has already played in 16 matches. Of these, 10 have been in Liga, five more in the UEFA Champions League and Tuesday's match at Camp Nou against Huesca was his first in the Spanish Cup this season.
