Liverpool boss Benitez: Mascherano accepts he was wrong

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez insists midfielder Javier Mascherano accepts he was out of order over his behaviour at Manchester United.

Benitez told "Javier after the game recognized that he made a mistake. He apologized to his teammates and the supporters. Now he knows that after the sending-off he lost a little bit of his control and he apologized also to the referee.

"I talked with him and said we would fine him as a club. He accepted this and told me he wanted to give the money to charity. The player is always a fantastic person and a fantastic professional."
