Gonzalo Higuain: Napoli Chief Pushed Me Out


Higuain: De Laurentiis pushed me into Juventus move

The striker has hit back at claims he “betrayed” his old club by insisting he never enjoyed a good relationship with his former president and is glad he moved to Turin

Gonzalo Higuain has accused Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis of pushing him into the decision to join Juventus.

The Argentina international sealed a €90 million switch to the Serie A champions this week, after agreeing a five-year contract worth a reported €7.5m per season.

De Laurentiis claimed he felt “betrayed” by Higuain’s decision, accusing Higuain of showing ingratitude towards Napoli despite three strong seasons with the club.

But the former Real Madrid forward has hit back at De Laurentiis, saying that the duo never saw eye-to-eye.

“My relationship with him was never good because his way of thinking was not like mine,” he said at his official presentation in Turin on Thursday. “My choice also came about because he pushed me to make it.

“Now I’m very happy here and I thank Juve for their great effort to get me.”
