Speaking during his press conference ahead of tomorrow’s Carabao Cup semifinal’s second leg vs Tottenham, Chelsea‘s manager Maurizio Sarri confirmed striker Gonzalo Higuain will sign very soon for the Blues.
“Higuain is a few hours away from signing his contract at Chelsea,” Sarri said. ‘We are hoping he will start scoring straightaway for us but there is more to his game than goals. He is a very strong striker and was especially strong during my first season in Naples, he did very well and scored 36 goals in 35 games in Serie A, and 39 in total. For sure he is one of the best strikers in my career, he has the right experience to play here”.
Not only Higuain, according to Sarri, will help Chelsea with his goals, but also thanks to his winning mentality, the aspect about which the Italian manager has strongly criticised his players in the last few days.
“He wants to win all the time, in any situation”. Sarri went on. “As far as failure is concerned, I wouldn’t call it that, he still scored nine goals (at AC Milan) and he found himself in a team which is not at the same level at Juventus.”
