Argentinian ace required stitches to his face.
Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis has threatened to sue the region of Campania and Capri after striker Gonzalo Higuain suffered cuts to his face after a fall.
The 25-year-old fell on rocks in Capri and was rushed to hospital where he received several stitches to his face before returning to train away from the rest of the squad on Tuesday.
It is believed that he may not be available for the game at Chievo this weekend, which has left De Laurentiis angered by the whole situation.
“I have not met with Higuain,” he told reporters as quoted by Football Italia. “But I want to see this cut to see if I can sue the region of Campania and Capri.
“An actor, a footballer and ordinary person – when they go to hospital they must be looked after well.
“I saw a picture of the wound and I am willing to ask my lawyers to ask for €100m in damage – a figure that I will donate to charity,” he added.
Higuain enjoyed an impressive debut against Bologna on Sunday, helping his new club to a convincing 3-0 opening weekend win at the San Paolo.
However, his absence will now be a blow considering he is still looking to work on his match fitness as well as building up some chemistry with his new team-mates.
Nevertheless, De Laurentiis appears to be set on taking legal action after the fall while he also revealed that he had offered Juventus target Juan Zuniga a new contract which was at least “40 per cent more” than what the Bianconeri are offering.
