Liverpool’s furry chinned supremo Rafa B, has claimed that Red is the new Black and that Mascherano is the new Keane. Rafa B is clearly trying to scare the Ferg, but he’ll have to try much harder than this if he is trying to bait the red nosed Scot into a response – although Rafa deserves praise for mentioning Mascherano and Roy Keane in the same sentence.
“United have signed two or three players in his position, sometimes paying more money than we did for Mascherano.
“We are happy with what we have. I don’t know if United are happy and I don’t know how interested United were in him, but we are really pleased. Mascherano has a fantastic mentality and is a good professional and he can be a key player for us over the next few years. He could be like Roy Keane. He is the same kind of player, a player with strong character. A leader. When you play in a foreign country the language is always important, and as Mascherano gets better with that he will improve as a player.”
Anyone think that taunting such a beast of a bully like Ferg is advisable?
