Mascherano pledges his future

Javier Mascherano today stressed his desire to remain on Merseyside and spoke of his confidence that he will soon put pen to paper on a new Liverpool contract.

Manager Rafael Benitez revealed this week that talks between the club and Mascherano's advisors were progressing - and the Argentine midfielder has now admitted he expects to soon commit his future to the Reds.

"The club are talking with my agents. I don't like to be involved in the contract meetings so I leave that to my agents and the people at the club," said Mascherano.

"Liverpool know I want to stay. I don't think it will be difficult to arrive at a deal and we will see what happens in the next few weeks."

There had been speculation suggesting Mascherano's Anfield career was heading to its end following reported interest from abroad, but the player himself admits he only sees himself as a Liverpool player.

"I have never said I was not happy at Liverpool," he added. "That was the press. I am happy here and the only way I can show that is with my performances on the pitch.

"I always try to do everything I can to help my teammates and manager. Sometimes I can do well and sometimes I can't, but I always look to give one hundred per cent in training and in games."
