Mascherano prepared to fill in for Barcelona at centre-half

Javier Mascherano is happy filling in at centre-half for Barcelona.

The Argentina midfielder was again played in defence for their 2-2 draw with Real Madrid.

"I'm not the first choice centre half - I am here so that when something happens, I can go out and do a job," said Mascherano.

"There were people who expressed doubts at the start of the season that we were beginning a new cycle, but we have demonstrated that we are still the same. This is a team which is full of life and we are determined to carry on doing what we have been doing over the last few seasons."
