Juventus striker, Gonzalo Higuain, has said that he will return to the training on August 24 to introduce himself to the club’s new coach, Andrea Pirlo.
DAILY POST recalls that this is coming after Pirlo took a final decision on Higuain’s future at Juventus.
Pirlo had put the Argentine striker with five other Juventus players up for sale this summer.
Reacting to the development, Higuain, 32, said he still has a year remaining with his contract at Juventus.
“For now, I am fine, rest and think,” Higuain told Fox Sports.
“On the 24th I go back to training, I still have a year of contract in Italy. I have to introduce myself, see what will happen with the new coach because there will certainly be a different dynamic.
“MLS? Many players go there, and it would be nice, yes. But now, I am here. Let’s see.”
He added: “After football, I will not become a coach: too much mental and physical stress.
“Coaches start with black hair and leave three years later with grey hair,” he said, laughing.
