Juventus, Higuain: “English teams are weak at the back”

The Argentine striker pulled Juventus level in the 60th minute and was crucial in Juventus’ come from behind victory at Wembley Stadium. Higuain spoke to Mediaset Premium following the match.

Higuain on facing a tough Totttenham side:

“It was a very difficult match against a great side like Tottenham, who always give their best and are aggressive, but we know English teams leave gaps at the back and provide us with opportunities. We had to make the most of them and we did. I’m very happy with this win as a comeback at Wembley is not easy.” 

Higuain on the team’s medical staff and rumours of his marriage:

“I am proud of this team and of the medical staff, who worked so hard to get me in shape for this game. Thank you to my wife, who put up with me over the last two weeks, I was in terrible pain. I called her wife because I will soon be a father, so it slipped, but no, there is no wedding despite the stories circulating in Argentina.”

Pipita will look to get back on the score sheet again this coming Sunday against Udinese at Allianz Stadium.
