Maurizio Sarri speaks out on Gonzalo Higuain’s furious reaction against after being substituted

Maurizio Sarri has spoken out on Gonzalo Higuain’s angry reaction after his decision to substitute him against Burnley. The Argentine striker, on-loan from Milan until the end of the season, ended a five-game run without a goal by firing his side into a 2-1 lead following an eventful opening quarter of an hour at Stamford Bridge. Higuain was hauled off with 13 minutes remaining and was visibly annoyed with the decision, throwing a water bottle to the ground after taking his place on the bench. "I’ve not spoken to him. I’m really very happy if a player wants to play, wants to react. But I think that he was really very nervous for the situation because we were not winning. The situation on the pitch, as you have seen, was really very difficult against opponents who didn’t want to play. So it was frustrating, his situation, I think."
