Injured Gonzalo Higuain “did the impossible to play” in Napoli’s triumphant Coppa Italia Final.
The striker was in doubt after he was stretchered off in agony with a badly bruised tibia last week, but recovered to start Saturday’s 3-1 win over Fiorentina.
“We did everything possible to win the Coppa Italia and we’re happy that we were able to give the Neapolitan people this joy,” Pipita told Radio Kiss Kiss.
“I wasn’t 100 per cent fit, but I did the impossible to play. Then after a while the ankle started really hurting again.
“Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens scored great goals, so I am happy for them.”
