Maurizio Sarri believes that Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain is comparable to the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The latter have been regarded as the best players in the world for some time. They have shared the FIFA Ballon d’Or award between each other for almost a decade. The gulf in class between these two players and the rest has been so immense that managers have been trying to promote their players as the solution. Higuain, though, has been in good form throughout 2015 and has carried on into 2016 as well. The striker’s 27 goals in just 29 league appearances mean that Napoli have regained their title challenge.
