Gonzalo Higuain admits “there was contact” with Kamil Glik, but denies fouling the Torino defender in Napoli’s 1-0 win.
The Argentine spoke to Sky Sport Italia after a last-gasp goal at the Stadio Olimpico in Turin.
“On the contact with Glik I was running very quickly and so was he,” shrugged Pipita when asked about the contentious incident leading up to the goal.
“I can only celebrate the goal.
“It was a very difficult match, but they are extremely important points and I am happy because we got closer to Roma.”
That victory puts Napoli level on points with second-placed Roma, who have two games in hand and play Udinese tonight.
