Interviewed by the Argentine broadcaster TyC Sportthe former JuveGonzalo Higuain spoke of his passage from Naples to Turin: “It was very difficult for me to make that decision, because I knew all that would entail, but I never had any doubts. I could have more love and more happiness, I had no reason not to go. I had scored 36 goals, we had a very strong team that played very well in football, but we weren’t able to win the Scudetto. I felt a strange sensation in my body, what else could I do? They paid me 94 million euros, it was an honor. And then I had the chance to play the Champions League final in the first year, the only one of my career. “ The Napoli fans, however, did not take it very well: “In life, evil all comes back … I suffered insults and a lot of hatred from the Napoli fans, but then in 8 games I scored 6 goals against them“.
During his time with Juventus, many accused him of being overweight: “At Juventus they were much more demanding on weight – he confirmed. They took pictures of me every year, but that didn’t bother me at all … I was pulling my belly in because I knew I was going to score 30 goals“. Then a market background: “I remember I was going to go to Arsenal when I was in Naples, but they told me it was too expensive. A few days later they spent 80 million on Ozil. Who would I invite for an asado? Ronaldo the Phenomenon, Buffon and Sergio Ramos“.
Higuain was lucky enough to play with both Ronaldo that with Messi: “If I wasn’t the one who played the most, I’m second. If I have to choose, I say Leo“. Final comment on the coaches: “The three best I’ve ever had were Sabella, Pellegrini and Sarri. I give up Maradonahe is a separate case, he was the first to bring me to the national team and I will be eternally grateful to him. ”
