West Ham’s Tevez: Mascherano leaving could be a good thing

He said: “In a way, Javier going to Liverpool could be a good thing as people will stop thinking of us as a pair and we can both get on and try to be successful in England.

“Mascherano already said we are not Siamese twins who always need to stick together. So now he is going to Liverpool, it’s problem solved.

“I know we both can play in England with no problem if we are given the chance to play on a regular basis.”
