Chelsea fans on Twitter have been advocating for Gonzalo Higuain’s departure after Goal released a video of the striker throwing a tantrum during training.
The on-loan Juventus striker has endured a torrid time in England, scoring just five times in 14 Premier League appearances while struggling to adapt to the pace of English football.
El Pipita scored 36 Serie A goals under Maurizio Sarri for Napoli in the 2015/2016 season and it was hoped that the Italian manager could help restore Higuain’s goalscoring form after a dismal first half of the season at AC Milan.
The former Napoli striker could still help the Blues to European glory with the Europa League final against Arsenal left to play, but his involvement is not guaranteed after Olivier Giroud’s top-scoring exploits in the competition.
Higuain is expected to depart Stamford Bridge this summer regardless of the fate of Chelsea’s transfer ban and after his antics in training, many Chelsea fans can’t wait to see the Argentine on a plane back to Italy.
Check out the best of the reaction below!
Childish behavior from a veteran , just makes the list of reasons even longer of why he shouldn’t be here next season. Also adds more fuel to the fire for the media.
