Gonzalo Higuain lost his damn mind last night. Of course, given the stakes of the match and that he had a penalty saved against his former club, his frustration was understandable. But no matter how understandable his frustration was, getting red carded by going after a referee was not a good idea.
Higuain wrote on Instagram:
I want to apologize to everyone for my behaviour on the pitch yesterday, to my teammates at the club, to the fans who have been showing me their love even more since yesterday. I take responsibility for my actions and I will do my best not to do it again.
Good for him to acknowledge that he screwed up, even if the referee was being a tad selective with the cards and fouls, that really isn’t the best way to address it.
