'Higuain better than Cavani'

Former Napoli striker Cristian Bucchi believes that Gonzalo Higuain is better than Edinson Cavani.

The Argentine forward netted twice at the weekend as the Partenopei overcame Milan 3-1, adding to his 12 Serie A goals since arriving from Real Madrid.

And the 36-year-old former Cagliari man has claimed that Higuain is doing better than his predecessor at Stadio San Paolo.

“For me, Gonzalo is a true champions,” he told TuttoMercatoWeb. “I agree with [Gabriel] Batistuta that he is better than Cavani.

“The lad’s extraordinary and has filled the void left by Cavani brilliantly. It’s great to watch him. He’s a real danger for opponents.

“I see Cavani is a more individualistic forward – more selfish. He was very central, whereas Higuain is all over the pitch participating in team play.”
