Higuain training separately after cutting face
Forward Gonzalo Higuain is training separately from the rest of
Napoli’s squad after cutting his face on underwater rocks off the
island of Capri.
The Argentina international needed eight stitches following the
errant dive Monday and Napoli’s medical staff wants him to avoid
physical contact with his teammates.
However, Higuain is expected to train regularly later in the
week and be available for Saturday’s match at Chievo Verona.
The incident came a day after Higuain played well, although did
not score, in Napoli’s 3-0 win over Bologna to open the team’s
Serie A season.
Higuain recently joined Napoli from Real Madrid.
