Higuain named his best player,is it messi? Cristiano Ronaldo or any other player?
Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain has named Brazilian icon Ronaldo as ‘the best ever’, Higuain was a teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid and an international teammate of Lionel Messi but ‘R9’ Ronaldo is best according to him.
“I’ve watched two million of his goals. For me, he’s the best ever, by a big margin,” Higuain explained in an interview with The Guardian.
“For me, it’s about always having the image of the goal in my mind. That’s fundamental, I think.”
Higuain himself is one of the most prolific goalscorers across Europe.After leaving Real Madrid in 2013, where he had scored a very impressive 110 goals in his final five seasons, His goal tally improved year on year at Napoli, culminating in a haul of 36 in the league in 2015/16 to equal an 87-year-old Serie A record. He scored 32 in all competitions during his debut season at Juventus.
He has played in a World Cup final, two Copa America finals and a Champions League final for club and country since 2014, and has missed several high profile chances, but Higuain doesn’t care about hatred he gets, he keeps focus on what he does best.
“I always believe that it’s beautiful to win important matches, but it’s also very important simply to reach those moments. I truly believe that. Juve has played two Champions League finals in three years. That is very difficult to do,” he explained.
And when it comes to the critics who point out his flaws, Higuain has little time, explaining, “My philosophy for football is to be happy with what you’re doing”.
