Mascherano: Barcelona not a one-man team

Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano denies they're a one-man team.

Mascherano has hailed compatriot and team-mate Lionel Messi but stressed the club do not rely solely on his talent.

"The frontline is very important for this team," he said. "Firstly because they can be trusted and, in addition, we also cannot rely on one player.

"Obviously it's super important, first for their confidence, and it is important because in a team like ours, playing three competitions, we cannot always depend on a player."
