Now retired, Gonzalo Higuaín spoke about Lionel Messi’s speech which is part of the recent Argentina documentary on Netflix. Speaking in an interview with TyC Sports, here is what he had to say:

“The speech from the other day gave me goosebumps. He doesn’t realise what he does to others, what he says comes through in a tremendous way.

“The last day he came to Miami, we had a very long chat, very nice in which we didn’t talk about football. I got to know him deeper as a person and was pleasantly surprised.
