Napoli forward Gonzalo Higuain
Argentine international Gonzalo Higuain has stated that Serie A side Napoli will fight for the Scudetto this season.
The former Real Madrid forward was the match winner when Partenopei defeated league leaders Fiorentina just moments after Nikola Kalinic had cancelled out an effort from Lorenzo Insigne.
Maurizio Sarri’s team have now won their last three Serie A matches and have moved to within three points of leaders Fiorentina on the log, but Higuain insists that the team will battle for the title but it is too early to speculate over who will win the championship at the end of the season.
“It was an important clash for the table and so we could continue the growth process,” Higuain told Sky Sport Italia.
“Fiorentina are a great team and in order to win we had to give everything. We did it and now we are happy. “Scudetto? There’s a long way to go, we have to make the most of every opportunity and slowly build on what we have.”
Napoli returns to action on Thursday against Norwegian side Midtjylland in the Europa League before facing Chievo in Serie A next Sunday.
