Napoli’s Argentine striker has caught the attention he wants more concentration from his team-mates in matches against smaller teams.
Napoli recorded two negative results last week, a 0-0 in Europa League on Swansea’s ground, and a 1-1 in Serie A when they hosted Genoa. This could cost them the elimination from European competition and the loss of the Champions League place in domestic championship.
The lack of constant results in Napoli’s game is largely due to the massive changes made in the last two sessions of transfers. However, Gonzalo Higuain, the leading scorer of Rafa Benitez’s team, drew the attention to his colleagues that they need more focus in games with smaller teams if they want to win something.
“I’m not too bothered about scoring, I just want the team to win. This season we have unfortunately lost too many points against smaller teams,” Higuain told reporters a few days ago.
“We had practically won against Genoa and ended up drawing instead. Luckily there are still a lot of games until the end of the season. We want to get into second in the standings.
“I came here to win, but at the same time I’m aware that a lot of new players have arrived this year. But I still believe there is time to change our fortunes for the better this season. But again, we have to understand why we do well against big teams and lose against the smaller ones.
“Hopefully we can improve and learn from our mistakes. Now we need to think about Swansea.” added former Real Madrid footballer.
