Maurizio Sarri has revealed that he has had no time to talk to Higuain about his angry reaction to being substituted against Burnley.
The Argentine was clearly riled up after being replaced and threw away a few water bottles in disgust.
Sarri attributed such actions on the Argentine’s behalf to the team’s weak performance and not to being substituted.
Sarri said: “In your opinion; in my opinion, he was really very angry about the situation on the pitch because we were not winning.
“I’ve not spoken to him. I’m really very happy if a player wants to play, wants to react.
“But I think that he was really very nervous for the situation because we were not winning.
“The situation on the pitch, as you have seen, was really very difficult against opponents who didn’t want to play. So it was frustrating, his situation, I think.”
