Published Add your comment

Javier Mascherano has revealed he has "no feeling" for former club West Ham as he prepares to face the east Londoners at Anfield.

The Argentinian midfielder spent an unhappy few months at Upton Park at the beginning of the 2006-07 season, joining along with Carlos Tevez in controversial deals that have caused the Hammers immense problems ever since.

As for his thoughts about the Hammers, Mascherano reports: "I don't feel anything about them. My club is Liverpool, and I do the best for the people here, my team-mates and supporters."

He added: "I do not think about anything now at West Ham. West Ham is nothing in my life now because I was not able to play there.

"It is just another team in the Premier League. I do not feel anything else.

"The important thing now for me is to win with Liverpool and to keep going. We want to be top of the table and we must just keep going."

He added: "West Ham brought me to England. That was very good for me, but I still could not play there, it was not like at River Plate or Corinthians when I could play and win titles.

"I only played a few games, so I do not have a big feeling for the club.

"But I was very pleased that they brought me to England, and happy with the welcome I got there. They did give me the chance to play in England, that is clear."
