Javier Mascherano admits he is happy to have signed a long-term contract with Liverpool earlier this season.

The Argentina midfielder told liverpoolfc.tv: "I am happy with my season because I played a lot of games for Liverpool. But the main thing was that I also signed a long-term deal that means I can stay at this club for the next four years. That is the most important thing for me.

"Maybe I cannot take titles and medals from this season to put up in my home but there is still time and I will try to win these next season."
