Higuain admits being driven out from Juventus by Ronaldo's arrival
- Argentine striker admits he had to leave soon as Ronaldo joined Juventus
- He feels sad having been kicked out of the club
AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain spoke to La Gazzetta Dello Sport: "On the day of the Coppa Italia final, I understood that something had changed. A few weeks later they signed Ronaldo. I didn’t choose to leave Juventus, they send me away.
"I gave everything to Juventus, I won many titles but when they signed Ronaldo they told me that I couldn’t remain at the club and that I had to find a new team."
"I had a good time at Juve. The fans loved me but everybody is saying that I was kicked out, I didn’t want to leave but AC Milan convinced me and there is a lot of love for me here."
Higuain got his first whiff of European football with Madrid, joining from River Plate in 2007 to win three La Liga titles.
But he was made available by Madrid in 2013 despite scoring 107 times in 190 league appearances, joining Napoli where he continued to score.
