Gonzalo Higuain had some things to say about him being a “mentor” to Patrick Cutrone.

Speaking to Milan TV, Higuain said:

I don’t consider myself a teacher for anyone.

If he sees me as an example that makes me proud, it means I’ve done well in my career. If I can be useful in coaching him then I’m pleased to do it.
