Higuaín explains why he joined MLS side Inter Miami

Gonzalo Higuain has revealed he moved to the Major League Soccer club Inter Miami because he was no longer enjoying football in Europe. 

Higuain left his homeland in 2007 and move to Real Madrid and considerable success has been enjoyed across spells in Spain, Italy, and England. The Argentine says he linked up with David Beckham at Miami because he was no longer enjoying football in Europe. 

"I always followed MLS closely because my brother and other great players were there," Higuain told the Que Golazo podcast on CBS. 

"But I wanted to come here with the intention of once again being happy while playing and I believe Inter Miami have given me everything I need." 

"Coming here to this league gives me the sensation like when I was a child and I had fun playing, that wasn't the case anymore in Europe for many reasons."

"I believe from a media standpoint, Europe was too much. I had to prove something match after match, which is something I did my entire career. They don't give you the time to enjoy the fact you play football." 

The 32-year-old has over 300 club goals to his name and has been a go-to option for the likes of Napoli, Juventus, AC Milan, and Chelsea.
