Napoli legend Diego Maradona has urged fans of the club not to vent their frustrations of Gonzalo Higuain’s move to Juventus, but rather at the owners of the club.
Argentine Higuain completed a £79m move from Napoli to Juventus, triggering anger and frustration from the Napoli fans who feel they have been betrayed by the striker after he completed the move following a medical in Madrid.
Maradona has however urged the fans to channel their anger towards the owners of the club and, who have allowed the player leave to join a direct rival.
“This Higuain affair is hurting me because he is going to a direct rival like Juventus. But we cannot blame the player either.
“A player has a responsibility to himself and it is those fat cats of business that are grinning the most in this case. Nobody thinks of the fan.
“I’m tired of saying that today it seems to be more important to be a good businessman than a good president. This did not happen in my time.
“Too bad that Fifa continues to sleep,” Maradona wrote on his Facebook wall.
Fans of Napoli were already posting images on Twitter or shirts with ‘Higuain 9’ on the back on fire or in the toilet.
