Higuain: 'Back from a bad period'

Gonzalo Higuain admits he went through a ‘bad period’ but ‘understood’ Juventus needed him after his comeback goal against Lecce.

Higuain was among the last to return to Juve after he tended to his sick mother in Argentina at the peak of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the 32-year-old netted during last night’s 4-0 victory over Lecce and assures he is now focused on ‘finishing the season in the best way’.

“First of all, after a bad period, I changed something about myself and understood the team needed to finish the season in the best way,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“It was right that I answered well to the call. I’m happy with the return. We have to rest because we return to the pitch on Tuesday.

“It was a difficult time due to the pandemic and my mother. The team were close to me and that pushed me to give more.

“We had to win so we could go seven points clear of Lazio. We’ve done our bit, but the campaign is still long because it can change from one moment to the next.”
