Capello: 'Juve, buy Higuain'

Fabio Capello has advised Juventus to make a move for Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain. “He is world class and works really hard for the team.”

The Bianconeri have stated they want a new striker and the Argentine is one of the top candidates.

“Gonzalo is a player who works really hard for the team,” former Real Madrid and England manager Capello told Tuttosport.

“He doesn’t just sit there and wait for the ball. He goes looking for it, comes back deep and allows others to push up into space, harassing defenders when they have the ball.

“As for when he’s in the box, there’s no doubt he is very talented and few have the same eye for goal as he does. He is world class.”

Capello knows Higuain well, as he brought him to Madrid in January 2007.

“In terms of character he is also a good lad. He works hard and does not have a bad attitude. In his first season in Europe with me, he was always among the first to turn up to training and gave 100 per cent to find his space in the side despite the very tough competition.”
