Juventus organized a media day with all their players available to answer questions and obviously comment on the upcoming UEFA Champions League final against real Madrid.
Gonzalo Higuain was first asked how he feels having to play against the team he used to serve before moving to Italy.
Football sometimes places you in situations like this one where I’ll face Real Madrid in the final. I want to win to lift the trophy, which I feel we deserve, given how we’ve performed the whole season. Nothing more and nothing less than that. It would be the same if we were playing against any other team
the Argentine striker told reporters.
It will be a tight game, between two very strong teams
he added, saying exactly what players are expected to say in such occasions. When he was asked about Sergio Ramos though, Higuain got humorous (even though serious at the same time).
Let’s hope he doesn’t score in the 90th minute
the Argentina international said, smiling, having in mind the Real Madrid defender’s heroics in many games, in which he scored important goals minutes or even seconds before the final whistle.
I have a lot of affection for him and his family and we still send each other messages
Higuain revealed, talking about his special relationship with the Real Madrid captain.
