Gonzalo Higuain has now completed his loan move to Chelsea from Juventus for the remainder of the season.

Asked what qualities he would add to the Chelsea team, Higuain told Chelsea’s official website: “I’m someone who is always trying to improve, day after day.

“I think the most important thing is to be humble, even when we make mistakes, and so when that happens I will always try to rectify that improve.

“For the rest, I’ll leave other people to give their opinions on me. I’m not someone who likes to talk too much about myself but I’m someone who tries to improve, and get the best out of myself and my team, at every opportunity.”

Higuain played under Maurizio Sarri at Napoli in the 2015/16 season and scored 36 goals, breaking a long-held Serie A scoring record.

Asked about his memories from that season, Higuain added: “It was a wonderful season and one in which I broke the goalscoring record, which is very important out there.

“It was a fantastic year for myself and Maurizio, and a period which we shared together, even though it was a short time. Now I’m just happy to be working with him again at a big club like Chelsea which has all the history and wonderful team-mates.

“I think everything is set on the right path to achieve our goals by the end of the season.”

Asked what made him decide to join Chelsea, Higuain said: “It was an opportunity that when it presented itself I couldn’t miss out on. I’m really excited to be here, to be working with Maurizio Sarri again and to be at a club with so much history.

“I’m just really happy to have completed the move and I hope to achieve all the goals which the club has set for itself between now and the end of the season.”

Higuain also revealed Sarri’s biggest strength as a coach.

“Maurizio Sarri is the coach who, in my career, has got the best out of me as a player,” Higuain said.

“He’s someone who knew how to work with me, particularly on the emotional side. That year together was fantastic and in big parts thanks to him, so coming to work with him is very important for me. I’m really happy to have been given the opportunity to do that and I want to get back to that level.”

Asked if he always wanted to test yourself in English football, Higuain added: “For a long time I’ve wanted to play in England but until now such a concrete opportunity hasn’t presented itself, so it was something I was never going to miss out on.

“It’s a huge challenge to come and play in the Premier League and I hope I’ll be able to settle in here at Chelsea. It’s a wonderful team and I hope we can bring a lot of happiness to the fans.

“Chelsea is a team who always has great players and as kids everybody watched the Premier League, so it’s a real dream for me to come and play in this league, having already played in three of the best leagues in the world, it’s a real source of pride for me and I hope to make the most of it.”
