Chelsea striker Gonzalo Higuain has hit at his critics revealing that he has moulded his mentality like a more mature player and off-field antics don’t bother him anymore.
Speaking to ESPN in his native country Argentina, the ex- Napoli man said:
“I have always regretted taking refuge at home and not having gone out on the street just out of fear of what critics might tell me,
“There are people who do evil and bad things with an uncovered face without shame. We haven’t killed anyone, we only play sport and we cannot go out?
“People always say ‘with the money they earn…’, but you can’t buy friends. I have been spending birthdays and Christmases with different people for 14 years.
“I want to see my mother but it’s 15 hours on a plane for her. Obviously, I could pay for the ticket but I don’t have her 10 minutes from me. The people don’t see that, only the goals you score or your performances.
“I’m at a stage of me life in which nothing hurts me a lot (now).”
