Gonzalo Higuain’s agent and brother Nicolas Higuain spoke to Tuttosport about his client.
“The first image that comes to mind is Gonzalo signing the contract, then he picked me up in his arms and threw me up in the air. He was so happy.”
“The rapport with De Laurentiis? At the moment, no comment.”
“Napoli at the 1st place? It’s a sport, there’s no problem… but if Juve win, it’s better. There’s a long way to go this season and if the Bianconeri continue like this, they can reach the Scudetto.”
“In any case, Gonzalo won the Serie A title in his first year in Turin, then the Coppa Italia and reached the Champions League Final. What more could he have asked for?”
“He had always scored goals in every club, but Juve helps you to grow. This club has an incredible organisation.”
“My favourite goal of Gonzalo? The second in a Boca Juniors-River Plate match, or the one for Argentina against Belgium that gave us the World Cup semi-final after 24 years. How can I not include the goals for Juve he scored against Roma, with Napoli in the Coppa Italia and this season against Milan. The first goal at San Siro was a really difficult bit of technique.”
“His past bad form? Football is not an exact science and players are like all other workers, as they too go through better or worse periods based on the thoughts going through their minds.”
“There are family situations that can influence you. For example, we had problems with our mother in the summer of 2016, before the Copa America.”
“Fortunately, she has overcome the illness and is doing well now, but must continue to have periodic checks. Even if you don’t want to think about off the field issues, you can’t help it. Unfortunately, in football nobody cares if your mother or your son is ill.”
