‘We have to stay professional’

Javier Mascherano has insisted that Barcelona have to try and fight for the League title right until the end.

The Blaugrana beat Athletic Bilbao 2-1 on Sunday to go four points behind leaders Atletico Madrid.

And the defender has claimed that whatever criticism the team receive, they have to still try and win the title.

“Beyond the criticism that we’ve received we have to stay professional and do our job,” he told Canal +.

“We must hold on to the illusion that is the title.

“We can’t change our ways. We’ve always had dignity, and we have to stay that way until the end.”
