Mascherano against Bayer Leverkusen / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

Javier Mascherano spoke to ‘El Marcador’, Barca TV's popular post game programme following FC Barcelona’s 2-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Here are the highlights from his interview:

“Our momentum, the team spirit and never-say-die attitude was crucial in a game we had to win.”

"We have important players injured, but that's football and we have a squad to succeed. Now is the time for those in the background to step up, it is an opportunity for those who do not often get minutes."

“Those of us who are fit and healthy have to keep going, and win while the others recuperate.”

Sergi Roberto has had a good pre-season and the manager is using him in different positions. We never doubted his ability.”
