“Was a misunderstanding”

“My future is far away from football,” 75-times Argentine national team player Gonzalo Higuaín recently said. “It will be far away. I will enjoy football while I play but after that, I want to be far away from it.” After statements made by his father, it now appears the end of the 34-year-old’s career is only a matter of time. 

“Gonzalo has told me that he will withdraw from football until the end of the year and end his career,” Jorge Higuaín said in an interview with TNT Sports Argentina. The contract of the France-born forward at Major League Soccer club Inter Miami CF will expire at the end of the season. Higuaín previously played for River Plate, Real Madrid, Napoli, Juventus, AC Milan, and Chelsea. The 34-year-old has generated €159 million in transfer fees, only nine players managed more.

Higuaín, however, denied his father’s statements one day later. “It was a misunderstanding,” Higuaín said as part of a media scrum. “I never told him I was retiring. He misspoke, and that can happen, but this is very far from reality. I am focused on my club, on fulfilling my contract and when the time comes, if that decision is made, I will be the one communicating it, only me.”

Higuaín critical: “As a player, you are like a non-returnable bottle” 

“As a player, you are like a non-returnable bottle,” the 2014 World Cup runner-up said in an interview with Spox recently. “When it is empty they step on it and throw it away. You are interesting as long as you play. After that nobody cares anymore. I have known that for years. Higuaín appears to be finished with the football business. “It damages you.”
