Maurizio Sarri has revealed that Gonzalo Higuain is finding it tough to adapt to the Premiership’s brand of Football which involves a greater degree of physicality in comparison to the other leagues in Europe.
Higuain has spent last 6 years of his career playing in Italy where it’s not like England, especially in terms of how defenders go about their business. There is not as much of physical presence as the forwards have to deal with in the Premiership and every forward needs a bit of time to get used to it.
Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Gonzalo Higuaín from Juventus on a temporary agreement. The Argentina international spent the first half of the ongoing campaign on loan with AC Milan but the contract was terminated after the marksman expressed the ambition to reunite with Maurizio Sarri at the Bridge.
“When the opportunity to join Chelsea presented itself I had to take it. It’s a team I’ve always liked that has a lot of history, a wonderful stadium and they play in the Premier League, a league I’ve always wanted to play in. I now hope I can give back that trust Chelsea have shown me out on the pitch. I can’t wait to start and I hope to adapt as soon as possible,” he told the club’s official website.
