Bonucci: Higuain was agitated

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has denied falling out with Gonzalo Higuain during the Supercoppa but admits the Milan striker was ‘agitated’.

Bonucci and Higuain had a coming-together after the final whistle in Jeddah, but the Argentine’s former Juve teammate assured it was nothing personal.

“Celebrating is always beautiful,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport after his side’s 1-0 win against Milan on Wednesday.

“Chiellini? He’s having a great season and he’s found a way to manage the games he plays.

“Higuain? We didn’t fall out. He was annoyed with the referee and I went to calm him down. He was agitated, but they’re things that happen on the field.”
