Mascherano angry over criticism of Barcelona coach Martino

Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano has hit out at critics of coach Tata Martino. Mascherano is angry over the way his fellow Argentine has been blamed for the team's stumbles.

"There is still a long way to go in La Liga and we are still positive about winning it.

"Suggestions we are not training properly are not important. I believe in what I do and what I see in the squad.

"At the end of the day I don't know who said this. It is impossible to know this. We are the ones that are really training hard and working hard.

"We have dignified this football profession. I can look at you in the eyes and say we do things well."
