Barcelona midfielder Javier Mascherano insists he's happy playing at the back.

The Argentine was again in the back three for victory over Real Mallorca.

The former Liverpool man insisted: “I feel great playing in the back line in a position that’s a bit weird for me on the right. But we did a good job and our defence was great.

“It was a difficult match; starting tomorrow, we have to start thinking about AC Milan. The away leg will be important in the tie.”
