He started his career at River Plate FC of Argentina before signing for Brazilian Serie A club Corinthians.

The ex-Argentine national team star joined Premier League side West Ham United in 2005 and he spent two years at the London club before joining Liverpool.

Javier Mascherano spent three years with Liverpool before leaving the Premier League for Spain where he signed for Barcelona.
