Higuain more complete than Cavani

Roberto Sosa has praised former club Napoli for their decision to replace Edinson Cavani with Gonzalo Higuain.

Cavani scored 104 goals in 138 games for the Azzurri over a three-year period, before he joined Paris Saint-Germain this summer for €64.5m.

The Stadio San Paolo outfit subsequently handed Real Madrid €37m for Higuain – a man who was also being chased by Juventus and Arsenal.

“Higuain is a starter for the Argentine national side and, at the age of 18, he was already playing for Real Madrid,” ex-striker Sosa told Radio Marte.

“Cavani, meanwhile, is behind Luis Suarez and Diego Forlan in the Uruguay side.

“The Matador is more of a goal scorer, but Higuain is the more complete footballer. I’m convinced that Gonzalo will do very well in Naples.”

The 25-year-old scored his first Azzurri goal in the win at Chievo in Week 2.
