FOCUS Lyon win proves that Higuain is a complete footballer
19 October at 23:43Let’s get a common misconception out of the way: Gonzalo Higuain is no luxury player, and can perform even when the going gets tough for Juventus and he has to get his hands dirty.
As he proved against Lyon last night, the Argentine can turn things around even when he doesn’t score, combining hard defending - he would drop as deep as his own box - to creating chances and inspiring Juan Cuadrado’s winner.
Simply put, the Argentine is an all-action player, not just someone who takes potshots at goals. Juventus may have bought him to score goals, but he’s so much more than that, someone who did his best Mandzukic impersonation on Tuesday… and came out a winner. In the Champions League, doubltess part of the reason behind that €90m investment.
