I am glad to see Mascherano as a left / right back in defense. He did so under Liverpool days, considering his height its wise. I still would play him as the defensive axis in midfield and use offensive wing backs on both flanks, but if not, then id take Masch over Rojo any day, and even over Zaba who is wearing out. Masch is a wall.
