The Gonzalo Higuain betrayal saga is taking forever to end as just a day after the Napoli president vented out his frustrations on the player moving to Juventus, the 29-year old has lambasted his former owner, claiming that he never enjoyed a fruitdful relation with Napoli’s president.
Higuain has accused Napoli president Aurelio De Luarentiis of pushing him away from the club.
Higuain went on to add that it was indeed Aurelio who forced him to make a move to the Turin based club.
Gonzalo Higuain earlier took an initiative to meet Juventus fans as the €90 million went out in his balcony and unveiled his number 9 jersey to Bianconeri fans waiting outside.
Higuain will earn a staggering €7.5 million-a-year at the Juventus Stadium, having signed a 5-year contract with the club.

De Laurentiis had claimed that Higuain’s decision felt like a “betrayel” and the Argentine showed ingratitude towards the club, having spent three good seasons at the club.
However, Higuain has hit back at Aurelio claiming that he never had a decent relation with him.
“My relationship with him was never good because his way of thinking was not like mine,” he said at his official presentation in Turin on Thursday. “My choice also came about because he pushed me to make it.
“Now I’m very happy here and I thank Juve for their great effort to get me.”
“I was silent, but now I can express myself,” said the 28-year-old. “I had three good years in Napoli, and I understand that they are angry with me. I saw the insults, but this is a choice I made for me. I’m happy to have done it.
“It was my choice to keep calm and stay silent. I was just thinking of my holiday with my friends and family.
“He [Sarri] was very important to me, he helped me grow. I only have words of thanks for him.”
