Gonzalo Higuaín was once again the protagonist on the field of play. He scored the Whites' goal and showed optimism regarding the next match: “We'll try to do things as well as possible in order to achieve victory against Barcelona”. In addition, he wanted to express his gratitude to the club and the fans for the support they've shown him: “I've been in Real Madrid for many years and was able to achieve many titles. People treat me really well and the teammates too. I'm eternally grateful to the fans and to this club. I'm here and have no intention of leaving”.
Regarding the game, he explained the team's bad luck in terms of scoring: “Unfortunately we drew in a match we could have won. There were opportunities to win in the second half, but these things happen in football and bad luck is also a factor. They scored against us very close to half-time. Last year Guaita blocked many of our shots at goal and this year it was Alves who played very well. It would have been better to start off with a win, but it wasn't to be and we have to move on”.
His role in the team is very important and proof of this are the goals that he has already scored against Valencia: “I always aim to help the team because all matches are important, regardless of who they're against”. The Argentinian also took the time to encourage his teammate Pepe, who suffered an injury during the match and had to be substituted: “I wish him a speedy recovery and hope he's with us as soon as possible”.
