Argentinian has the faith of the club behind him.
Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain has revealed that he needed a change from Real Madrid and is delighted with his decision to move to Naples.
The 25-year-old sealed a €37.5m switch to the San Paolo this past summer, after spending seven years with the Spanish giants.
Having been handed the responsibility of replacing Edinson Cavani after his switch to Paris Saint-Germain, the Argentinian international has scored six goals in 12 games so far, but has been hampered by injury over the past month.
Nevertheless, Higuain feels as though he made the perfect choice in joining the southern giants, and feels in a much better place knowing that he has the full support of the club behind him.
“President Aurelio De Laurentiis convinced me very quickly,” he told Cadena Cope, according to Football Italia.
“I am grateful for the seven years in Madrid, but in Napoli I have an affection that every player needs.
“Everything is better when you have the absolute confidence of your teammates, the directors and the club. I am very happy here.”
The striker admitted that he felt he had to always prove himself in Spain which put additional pressure on him, and that he had previously changed his mind about leaving the club the year before after hearing the supporters chants asking him to stay.
“I needed a change of scenery and new challenges, a chance to look for new things in my life. It is an important challenge – I want to take Napoli to the top!”
The Azzurri currently sit in joint second in the Serie A table along with Juventus and are three points adrift of leaders Roma. However, their focus will be on Marseille this week as they look to take an important step towards qualification for the Champions League knock-out stages.
Both Arsenal and Dortmund perhaps remain the slight favourites to progress, but coach Rafa Benitez will be determined to seal all three points against their French rivals in order to put further pressure on the duo.
