I can remember when Javier Mascherano burst on the scene four years ago.
Playing for Argentina in the last World Cup.
We had a completely different discussion about him on here.
He was still owned by the same consortium that had Tevez as well.
We were discussing buying him, and later selling him for a profit.
It all went legs up because of the co-ownership nonsense.
He was an excellent dm then, but somehow I don't think he has progressed that much, not that I watch the rs much.
Johnny Heitinga is in essence a defender, always has been, but can play dm as well.
I think GL got it spot on.
