Javier Mascherano Announces Retirement From Soccer 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Nov 16, 2020 5:54 am

Javier Mascherano announced his retirement from soccer on Sunday.

The 36-year-old is the most-capped player in Argentina national team history.

\"I lived my profession 100%, to the maximum that I possibly can, and for a while now that has been getting harder. Sometimes you don\'t choose the end, it happens all by itself,\" said Mascherano.

Mascherano won 19 trophies over a eight year span at Barcelona.

As a Liverpool fan, I totally dug Mascherano, and his work. I thought he was a serious talent, and played a great defensive-mid for us. Was really bummed when he got 'plucked' by Barca.....and I was really sorry to see the midfield of Gerrard, Alonso, and Masch couldn't ever get a prem title.

Congrats on a wonderful career. Enjoy yourself
