Zola Advises Higuain to "Read" Premier League

Zola Advises Higuain to

It has been a much-anticipated move and the World Cup runner-up medal victor is supposed to help Maurizio Sarri revive Chelsea's fortunes.

The Blues booked their berth in the final of the EFL Cup courtesy of a 4-2 win on penalties against Tottenham Hotspur as Higuain watched on from the dugout on Thursday.

After being beaten by Arsenal, Sarri said: "I prefer him [Hazard] when he speaks with his feet".

Higuain has played in a number of major clubs like Real Madrid, Napoli, Juventus and AC Milan in his career, but has not played in the Premier League so far.

Six thousand Wednesday fans will make the trip south in what is interim manager Steve Agnew's last game in charge for the Championship club before new boss Steve Bruce arrives fresh from watching England's cricketers in their Test match against the West Indies.

"I've been decisive in Wembley, in semifinals and finals", he said.

"So that's why we ask Eden sometime to put himself about in working hard".

Higuain will be reunited with Sarri, who managed the 31-year-old at Napoli and made him his top target in the January transfer window.

"But I have to be fair: Eden has been trying to do it". The players had a very good level of determination so I was very happy with the level of performance.

Gonzalo Higuain, who could make his debut in tomorrow's FA Cup fourth-round tie with Sheffield Wednesday at Stamford Bridge, has been backed to be an immediate hit with the Blues. I think that for a long-term contract, he has to do very well. "Maybe I have to show more in training to be back in the team".

"That's what allowed me to get into the system quickly".

"But honestly they were fantastic with me, they looked after me so much". So I think Higuain is this kind of player and he can also link with the wingers and the midfield, but he can also be the proper striker.

While Real Madrid remain focused on securing silverware this season - with the Copa del Rey and the Champions League the trophies particularly within reach - they are also busy preparing for the future, not least given the inconsistent nature of a 2018/19 campaign that has left Madridistas calling for major signings.

But according to European football expert Raphael Honigstein might not turn out to be the success story that Maurizio Sarri has been hoping for.
