Gonzalo Higuain insists Maurizio Sarri will get the best out of him at Chelsea – just as he did at Napoli.
Higuain moved to Stamford Bridge on an initial six-month loan in January and hit the ground running with two emphatic strikes in Chelsea’s 5-0 thrashing of Huddersfield.
The Argentine enjoyed the highest goalscoring return of his career during Sarri’s tenure at Napoli, finding the back of the net on 38 occasions in 2015/16.
And, in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports, Higuain is confident Sarri could help him rekindle that form in the Premier League.
“He is the coach that has got the best out of me,” the 31-year-old said. “I know him well, he knows me well.
“I’m hopeful I will get back to that level we had before, this is the idea. He is someone who helps me, knows my game and how to get the best out of me.
“I am very happy to be here. It’s a wonderful club with a wonderful stadium and it is really a fantastic experience. I hope with time that this team will be able to achieve all the goals they can.”
