Biglia: ‘Higuain affected by criticism’

Lucas Biglia believes Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain was “very influenced by destructive criticism”, but hopes he can return for Argentina.

The striker hasn’t been called-up since Jorge Sampaoli took over the Albiceleste job, but the Milan midfielder wants to see Pipita back in the squad.

“Higuain was very influenced by destructive criticism, not purely by football,” Biglia told Fox Sports Argentina.

“I hope he can get a new chance.

“The World Cup? We’re depending on [Lionel] Messi, but we’re not favourites.”
