What's the story?

Chelsea's new signing, Gonzalo Higuain reveals that he is delighted to be reunited with his former teammate, Jorginho at the Stamford Bridge.

In case you didn't know...

Chelsea signed the Juventus striker, Gonzalo Higuain on loan for the remainder of the season with an option to buy him for £31.3 million.

The 31-year-old earlier played under Sarri at Napoli for one season. He scored 36 league goals during his solitary season under Sarri, which is an all-time record for most goals scored in a single Serie A season.

Jorginho was also a part of that team and both of them enjoy a great relationship. Higuain was picked up by the Italian for his first training season with the Blues.

The heart of the matter

Speaking to Chelsea TV, Higuain said that he is delighted to be reunited with Jorginho.

“It was my best year as a player and he’s a wonderful midfielder who contributed to that,” Higuain told Chelsea’s TV.

“He’s also a very good friend of mine so it’s a real pleasure to once more be joining up with him, and I hope we can achieve great things together again.”

“It was a wonderful season and one in which I broke the goalscoring record, which is very important out there,” he added.

“It was a fantastic year for myself and Maurizio, and a period which we shared together, even though it was a short time.


“Now I’m just happy to be working with him again at a big club like Chelsea which has all the history and wonderful team-mates.

“I think everything is set on the right path to achieve our goals by the end of the season.”

What's next?

Chelsea will play Tottenham for the reverse leg of the Football League Cup semi-finals later today and will be looking forward to overturning the tie after losing the first leg 1-0.

However, Higuain was not registered on time to play the game and the Argentine have to wait until Chelsea's FA Cup fourth round game against Bournemouth for his debut.
