Higuain Chelsea

Higuain ‘happy’ to be reunited with Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea

Gonzalo Higuain said he is happy to be playing under Maurizio Sarri once again at Chelsea until the end of the season. 

The Argentine striker, who joined Chelsea on loan from Juventus in January, played under the Italian manager at Napoli, where he scored an astonishing 36 goals in 35 Serie A games in the 2015-16 season.

It is little wonder then, that Higuain is delighted to be reunited with Sarri at the South London club, who have been crying out for a goalscorer during this campaign.

Speaking to the official Chelsea website, the 31-year-old revealed how the chain-smoking coach helps him improve his game and what he likes about the club so far.

“I’m just happy to be working with Maurizio again at a big club like Chelsea which has so much history and wonderful team-mates,” Higuain said.

“He helped me with his methods, but especially with his words.

“Before I came to Chelsea, I had the impression of a very good team, a great club, and of course you can see this is a very talented group of players.

“The training ground and all the facilities are at a great level – everything they have here is of the highest standard.

“It’s a huge challenge to come and play in the Premier League and I’m going to give my all to help Chelsea.”

Higuain opened his Chelsea account with a brace during the 5-0 win over Huddersfield Town last week, a trend Blues fans will be hoping he can replicate in the team’s quest to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
