Higuain gives River Plate lesson

Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain fuelled rumours of a return to River Plate after he held a videoconference lesson for their youth team players.

The forward flew back to Argentina the moment his quarantine period ended so that he could be close to his mother, who is dealing with cancer.

This situation and the uncertainty over the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe has prompted reports Pipita is trying to remain in South America, potentially with a transfer to his first club River Plate.

According to newspaper Ole, Higuain held a videoconference lesson with River Plate’s youth team players, giving tactical and training advice, as well as answering questions.

The 32-year-old started his career at River Plate before moving to Real Madrid in January 2007.

Experiences at Napoli, Juventus, Milan and Chelsea followed.
