Gonzalo Higuain explained the reasons behind his departure from Juventus this summer, confirming that the club ‘kicked him out’ to make room for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Argentine striker join the Rossoneri in July shortly after the arrival of CR7 but Pipa believes things went sour before then
“From the day of the Coppa Italia final I had an idea that something had broken,” Higuain told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“And then they took Ronaldo. The decision to leave wasn’t mine, I gave everything for Juventus and won a lot of trophies.
“Then Cristiano arrived and the club wanted to make a leap in quality and they told me I couldn’t stay, and that they were trying to find a solution. The best solution was Milan.
“Revenge against Juve? No, not at all. I only feel affection because they treated me very well. My teammates and the fans treated me really well, but I never asked to leave. Basically, as everyone says, they kicked me out.
“I immediately felt great love from Milan and they convinced me.
“What would I take from Juventus? They score and then they win, whereas we’re a team that scores but have to think about winning 6-3 or 7-4.
“We have to score and win like they do, and have their winning mentality in the defensive phase. We need to learn to score and then close out the match like Juventus do, they’re war machines.
“Obviously they also feel pressure when their opponents score, but so far no-one has been able to take the Scudetto from them.
“Max Allegri? He improved me in some aspects, how to help the team defend and how to attack the goal.
“Aurelio De Laurentiis? No, but it’s all of our faults, not his…
“Lavezzi left on bad terms, Cavani the same. With Sarri on the bench he was already contacting another Coach and he got €94m for me.
“Everyone has had problems with him and people insult others. I have nothing negative to say about the Napoli fans, those were three beautiful years.
“They loved me and now they hate me. One day I’ll say what I think, but right now I can’t.”
