Bio: Dear WTFoot fans, welcome at the profile of El Pipita! He was born in Brest (France) and lived there un till he was ten years old. His father is Jorge Higuain, a professional footballer who used to play for Stade Brestois 29. Despite the fact that Gonzalo does not speak any French, he still retains the French citizenship in addition to his Argentine nationality. Anyway, he started to play football in Argentina, where he joined the youth academy of River Plate in 1997. He made his debut for the first team in a 2-1 defeat versus Gimnasia y Esgrima on 29 May 2005. He was still very young but already scored 5 goals in 12 appearances during the 2005-06 season. It was clear that this lad had an enormous future. By the end of the next season (2006-07) he scored ten games in seventeen games. Fact: he was only eighteen years old by then. In December 2006 the legendary Spanish club Real Madrid bought him for 12 Million Euro. Madrid he became he superstar by scoring over one hundred goals in only 190 games. But still, he never had the full trust of the fans and the staff and had a fantastic competitor for the striker position with Karim Benzema. After seven years in Madrid he left to Napoli. In three seasons he became the king of Naples and moved to the biggest club of Italy, Juventus. He is known as a hardworking striker and a real ‘killer’, buying Gonzalo is buying goals. He is considered as one of the best strikers of his generation. The clinical finisher currently plays on loan in London for Chelsea FC.
