Mascherano hails Barcelona character after winning local Double

Javier Mascherano has hailed the manner of Barcelona's Double triumph.

Barca won the Copa del Rey final yesterday against Athletic Bilbao.

Mascherano said: "We have to celebrate it because it's very difficult to win the Cup and that's why we play.

"Maybe that was one of Messi's best goals. Goals are also measured by the importance of the match and by the opponent. Leo worked his magic and that moved things in our favour.

"I'm a person who likes to talk about football. I try to help the coach due to my experience and the way I am. I like to be positive, and this year hasn't been easy, but we finishing it in the best way possible. We have one game left to finish it perfectly.

"I think we have to be able to accept criticism to get better and to grow. Here's the evidence: two titles and the possibility to win the Champions League."
