Gonzalo Higuain has sent a message for his Chelsea critics ahead of Burnley

Chelsea will be hosting Burnley today, April 22 in the Premier League match day 35.

Gonzalo Higuain left Milan to join the Blues in January and after showing flashes of quality in his opening few games, he has failed to fix the problems up in Maurizio Sarri’s team.

Ahead of the game,  Higuain has sent a message to his critics.

“I have always regretted taking refuge at home and not having gone out on the street just out of fear of what criticis might tell me,” he said, as reported by Sport. (via

“There are people who do evil and bad things with an uncovered face without shame. We haven’t killed anyone, we only play sport and we cannot go out?

“People always say ‘with the money they earn…’, but you can’t buy friends. I have been spending birthdays and Christmases with different people for 14 years.

“I want to see my mother but it’s 15 hours on a plane for her. Obviously, I could pay for the ticket but I don’t have her 10 minutes from me. The people don’t see that, only the goals you score or your performances. I’m at a stage of me life in which nothing hurts me a lot (now).”
