Prosinecki labels Higuain as 'a pig'

Former Croatian ace destroys Higuain after first game with Juventus

August 11, 2016 By Oscar Rojas
The only player to score for two different countries in World Cup history criticized the Argentinean's shape in his debut with Juventus.

Gonzalo Higuaín surely has taken a lot of heat in the past couple of weeks. Since he joined Juventus, the Argentinean striker has endured some criticism by fans and experts for "betraying" Napoli, but his seemingly overweight performance granted him the harshest of critics.

Croatian coach Robert Prosinecki, who played for Barcelona and Real Madrid in the early 90s, and also holds the record as the only player ever to score goals for two different National Teams in different World Cups, blasted Higuain's form in his first game with Juventus, even referring to the player as "a pig".

"When I first saw him, I was shocked. He's fatter than me! And to think that Juventus paid €90M for Higuain and got a pig instead," Prosinecki stated.

Even Napoli fans mocked Higuain's form by "extending" the player's jersey.

Moments later, Prosinecki eased up on his criticism, and even hinted that "Pipita" will become fit shortly.

"I can imagine Allegri's face when he saw him after pushing so hard to have him around. But in spite of all this, I think he'll go back to his true self shortly," the coach added.

Higuaín's Serie A debut could come in just nine days, when La Vecchia Signora hosts Fiorentina on August 20th. Juventus will try to win a sixth straight title, and Higuain is expected to be key for the team if they want to accomplish that.
