Two goals in seven matches in three competitions is a poor tally for a top striker, and can draw a lot of criticism if you’re the star of one of Europe’s biggest clubs. Gonzalo Higuain is aware of what is being written and said, just like his coach Massimiliano Allegri, who has no doubt though that his Argentine striker will get back to his best very soon.
The most important thing is that Higuain has total faith from his team-mates, the coach, the club and the fans
the Juventus coach told reporters ahead of Turin’s big derby between the Bianconeri and Torino.
These periods happen to every striker when the ball doesn’t go in for two or three games, but he will break through. He played well on Wednesday night
Allegri said, referring to Juve’s game against Fiorentina.
The Argentina international has scored twice so far this season, against Chievo and Cagliari at home, it was Juve’s second and third goal respectively in those two matches, not the first, and generally he has looked… ‘not decisive’ in the Bianconeri’s games.
The fact that he was left out of Argentina’s latest World Cup qualifiers, put him under even more pressure to… go back to delivering on a regular basis, the way he has done ever since he moved to Italy from Real Madrid.
