The Juventus player signed for Chelsea in a loan deal.
Chelsea finally have a solution to their striker problem. The Blues after month’s speculation have signed Gonzalo Higuain on loan from Juventus. Higuain’s arrival might help Chelsea to score more goals. His arrival certainly played a catalyst role in Chelsea’s league cup semi-final victory over Tottenham. However, it seems Higuain’s arrival at Chelsea was mocked by his former A.C Milan teammates.
A.C Milan player Suso and Jose Mauri took less than 24 hours to mock their former AC Milan team-mate’s loan switch to Chelsea. Gonzalo Higuain signed for the Blues on Wednesday night, joining the west Londoners until the end of the season. Chelsea have the option to make the move permanent or to keep the striker on another loan for 12 months. Higuain got straight to work on Thursday, training with the first team and reuniting with Maurizio Sarri with whom he previously played under at Napoli.
The striker uploaded pictures of him in action on Instagram. However, but soon found himself cruelly mocked. The reason of mockery was because of his tight tracksuit trousers. Suso commented, “They could give you bigger trousers.” Mauri replied to Suso’s comment by saying, “They [Chelsea] spent all money on you [Higuain], so they have no more XXL size.”
Higuain was unveiled at Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening, ahead of Chelsea’s Carabao Cup semi-final clash against Spurs.
After completing his move, Higuain said, “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.”
It seems that Suso and Mauri are taking a dig at Higuain. It’s a friendly banter that hints Higuain is more of an interactive player. But Higuain has quickly become the centre of action after his arrival. The striker celebrated Sissoko’s booking and celebrated the victory with Sarri and Chelsea staff.
