Javier Mascherano has dedicated Barcelona’s Champions League win over Manchester United to Liverpool fans.

The Argentina international, who spent three seasons at Anfield, played at centre-half in the absence of the injured Carles Puyol in Barca’s 3-1 win over United on Saturday night.

Mascherano became a fans’ favourite at Liverpool, but left under a cloud last summer after engineering a move to the Catalan giants.

But the 26-year-old, will have endeared himself to the Kop faithful once more, after revelling in Barca’s win over Liverpool’s fierce rivals.

‘I know the Liverpool supporters were a little bit sad with me after my exit, this is for them as well,’ Mascherano said.

‘United are a fantastic side but we played in the way we know we can play.

‘It’s very good for us to win the Champions League because for any footballer this is the top target.

‘We had a lot of chances to score and we couldn’t take them all in the first half but in the second half we had the chances and we scored them.’
