Higuain apologises for his San Siro meltdown during 2-0 defeat to Juventus

first_imgGonzalo Higuain has taken to social media to issue a emotional apology after enduring a torrid night for AC Milan in which he missed a penalty and was then sent off against Juventus.Trailing 1-0 to a Mario Mandzukic header, Higuain had the chance to draw Milan level from the spot just before the break, but was denied by former Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny who pushed his effort onto the post. 2 “It was a yellow card, the decision was made, I apologise for the reaction and I take responsibility for it.“When you play against your old club, obviously it feels different. I take responsibility, I know it mustn’t happen again, but at that moment we were losing and we are not robots. We are human beings, we have emotions.“I got it wrong, I apologise and I hope it won’t happen again. I am a very emotional person and player, so at times it is difficult to control my sentiments. You can tell just by looking at me what mood I am in,” saying it’s not a reaction he wants to set for children and acknowledged he gets wound up too easily sometimes.The 30-year-old then posted a similar apology to his three million Instagram followers.“I want to apologise to everyone for the behaviour of yesterday’s expulsion, the team, society, fans who despite yesterday showed me their love all the time,” he said.“We are people too and we have feelings but I am responsible and I hope it does not happen again.“Some will understand it, others will not. I also apologise to all. Have a nice life.” huge blow Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions Higuain had to be restrained by his own team-mates as well as those of Juve, who tried and failed to calm him down MONEY ADVICE However, the situation got worse for the Argentina international, as his side went further behind through a Cristiano Ronaldo strike, before Higuain was booked twice in a matter of seconds for a rash challenge and then shouting at referee Paolo Mazonelli.Incensed by the decision, Higuain shoved former Real Madrid team-mate Ronaldo as he tried to defuse the situation and eventually left the San Siro pitch in tears.In an attempt to redeem his actions, Higuain, who was sent on loan to Milan from Juventus to accommodate Ronaldo’s £99m transfer, apologised.“I have to apologise to my team-mates, the Coach, the fans and the referee, who knows what I said to him.
