Higuain Gonzalo

Gonzalo Higuain will return to the San Paolo stadium first time after leaving Napoli and Joining Serie A champions Juventus.

Former Napoli player Ciro Ferrara believes the player will receive a lot of varied attention from the home fans, however, that could bring the best out of the 29-year-old Argentine.

“I expect a varied welcome [for Higuain], somewhere between indifference and whistles. I really hope that, beyond the predictable whistling, there’s some space for some witty, subtle teasing. I hope that education and respect prevail.” said the former Juventus and Napoli man.

“I don’t know Higuain personally but I know for a fact that a champion of his calibre will not be scared or intimidated by a hostile atmosphere. After all, he’s already scored against Napoli in a Juve shirt, though it’s true that that was at the [Juventus] Stadium and not the San Paolo.
