Cassano reacts to Milan’s move to offload Higuain to Chelsea

Former Italy international, Antonio Cassano, has said that AC Milan would be mad to let Gonzalo Higuain leave the club.

Cassano, who maintained that the Argentine is Milan’s ‘only decent player’, blamed Higuain’s struggle for goals this season on the rest of the Rossoneri squad.

Milan boss, Gennaro Gattuso, stated, weekend, that he does not know what will happen with the striker amid rumours linking the 31-year-old with a reunion with Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea.

Reacting, Cassano told Sky Sport Italia: “For me it’d be madness to sell Higuain. He’s their only decent player, their only champion, and one of the best strikers in the world. I would never get rid of him.

“If Milan want to win something they need their best players with just their other players they’ll struggle.

“Higuain played for Real Madrid for seven years, there’s a reason for that. If Milan are having problems it’s because they don’t have players who can give him the right ball.

“His movement on the pitch is great, but no one gives him service that’s why he wants to go to Chelsea.

“He’s having difficulties but he’s not finished. He’s always able to score and make a difference.”
