What Higuain said after joining Chelsea

Chelsea’s new signing, Gonzalo Higuain has said that he can’t wait to link up with his former Napoli teammate, Jorginho.

Higuain stated this shortly after he signed for Chelsea from Juventus on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old joined Chelsea on a six-month loan deal, with an option for the West London club to buy him for £32.5million in the summer.

“It was my best year as a player and Jorginho is a wonderful midfielder who contributed to that,” Higuain told Chelsea’s official website.

“He’s also a very good friend of mine so it’s a real pleasure to once more be joining up with him, and I hope we can achieve great things together again.

“It was a wonderful season and one in which I broke the goal-scoring record, which is very important out there.

“It was a fantastic year for myself and Maurizio, and a period which we shared together, even though it was a short time.

“Now I’m just happy to be working with him again at a big club like Chelsea which has all the history and wonderful teammates.

“I think everything is set on the right path to achieve our goals by the end of the season,” he said.

Higuain is expected to feature for Maurizio Sarri’s side when they tackle Bournemouth in the Premier League fixture on Wednesday.
