Barcelona signing Mascherano: Liverpool broke promises
However, he blamed the club for the breakdown in relations, accusing them of breaking promises.
The Guardian quotes him as saying: "When they started to involve my family and to say things that didn't make sense, I obviously suffered.
"They'd promised me something for a whole year and they never fulfilled their promise. And that didn't have anything to do with my family or anything else. When you read or hear lies, you obviously get angry."
