Barcelona midfielder Javier Mascherano has no regrets over his departure from Liverpool.

Mascherano has even been deployed as a central defender, instead of his favoured midfield role, but he is still adamant he was right to force through a move from Anfield.

"Obviously when you decide to take the decision to go to another club it is a new stage in your life. To come to Barcelona was a risk," he said.

"I left Liverpool and I do not regret how things have gone as I am in the final of the Champions League."
