Chelsea Head Coach Maurizio Sarri has backed his protege Gonzalo Higuain to turn his fortunes at Stamford Bridge should the Argentine extend his Premier League stay.
When asked if he wanted Higuain long term, Sarri Said:
Yes of course, but it depends on the club, it depends on Juventus. It’s not clear the situation at the moment.
“I think that he has to improve physically (and) mentally. But I think also that he will be able to be very useful for us in the last part of the season.
“You know very well that it’s not easy in the first months to play in the Premier League. It was a problem also for [Luis] Suarez. In the first season at Liverpool he only scored four goals but in the second season he scored 17 goals.
“So it’s not easy for a striker to play immediately well in the Premier League. I think he has time for improvement.”
