Barca's Mascherano Injury: Player Suffers Cut Head, Concussion And A Twisted Knee

Javier Mascherano's outing in the Copa del Rey final against Deportivo Alaves didn't last long, as the veteran defender suffered a head injury that required him to leave the pitch on a stretcher after just 11 minutes.
The Argentine defender had a coming together with Alaves' young Spaniard Marcos Llorente and immediately started bleeding from his forehead. He also seemed to twist his knee while landing and held his leg.
