Latest LFC news from the Liverpool ECHO - Hodgson to get Mascherano to spend, Jovanovic keen to succeed, Tommy Smith column
ROY HODGSON has been given the green light to reinvest every penny Liverpool will receive from Barcelona for Javier Mascherano on new recruits.
THE wife of Liverpool FC's star summer signing Joe Cole was the victim of a violent carjacking by eight thugs on motorbikes.
FIRST came the crushing disappointment, then followed the quiet reflection; now the time has arrived for Liverpool to continue their fight back.
WELL done to Liverpool - and well done Roy Hodgson. After the dismay of losing 3-0 at City and the controversy over Javier Mascherano, the last thing anyone really needed was to be heading to eastern Turkey to defend a 1-0 lead with top stars like Gerrard, Torres and Agger all missing.
STEVEN GERRARD believes Liverpool will need to be on top form to progress from the group stage of the Europa League.
SO he has got his wish; 13 months after expressing his intense desire to join Barcelona, Javier Mascherano is finally on his way to Catalonia.
