The Argentine is happy to have joined the Serie A side and is over the moon with the fans’ adoration of him compared to Blancos supporters
Gonzalo Higuain has insisted that he does not have any regrets over his decision to leave Real Madrid for Napoli at the start of the campaign.
The Argentina international was one of three players to make the move from los Blancos to the Serie A side last summer – with Jose Callejon and Raul Albiol accompanying the striker – and he is happy with his decision to move on from Madrid.
“I am more proud of the decision I took with every day that goes by; I love Naples and its people,” Higuain was quoted as saying by Sportsweek.
“Diego Maradona didn’t need to convince me to come here. The decision was mine and I don’t regret it.
“At the Santiago Bernabeu they never chanted my name, whereas here every time my name is announced there is an almighty roar.”
Higuain, 26, has quickly developed into a key player at Napoli, scoring nine goals in 17 Serie A appearances so far this season.
