Chelsea winter signing Gonzalo Higuain has heaped praise on his manager Maurizio Sarri, saying the Italian gets the best out of him.
The Argentine, who is on loan at Stamford Bridge, is confident that with Sarri in charge he will deliver and help Chelsea finish the season successfully.
The former Madrid star and Sarri previously worked together during their time at Napoli in the 2015/16 season, with Higuain breaking the long-standing record for the most goals in a Serie A season by netting a sensational 36 strikes in just 35 appearances.
“Sarri is the coach who has got the best out of me as a player,” Higuain said.
“He’s someone who knew how to work with me, particularly on the emotional side. That (2015/16) was a wonderful season, one in which I broke the goal-scoring record, which is very important out there.
“It was a fantastic year for myself and Maurizio, a period which we shared together, even though it was for a short time.’
“I’m just happy to be working with him again at a big club, which has so much history and wonderful team-mates. I’m really happy to have been given the opportunity to do that and I want to get back to that level.
“I think everything is set on the right path to achieve our goals by the end of the season.”
Higuain got off the mark on his home league debut at the weekend, netting twice against lowly Huddersfield Town.
