Higuain: 'Happy with Juve goal'

Gonzalo Higuain was “very happy for my debut, the victory and the goal” as he got off to the perfect Juventus start.

The €90m signing came off the bench and within eight minutes scored the decisive strike as Juve beat Fiorentina 2-1.

“I am very happy for my debut, for the victory and the goal,” Pipita told Mediaset Premium.

“We must continue like this. It was very important to start with a win. We worked hard and the victory was deserved.

“I hope to repay the affection of the fans with many goals. I want to win as many titles as possible, but we’re just at the beginning.

"I dedicate the goal to everyone who had faith in me."

Remarkably, this is the first time Higuain has scored in Serie A Week 1, as in his three years at Napoli, he never opened with a goal.
