Former Napoli striker Cristian Bucchi is full of admiration for Gonzalo Higuain.

The Argentine struck twice in victory over AC Milan.

“For me, Gonzalo is a true champions,” Bucchi told TuttoMercatoWeb. “I agree with [Gabriel] Batistuta that he is better than (Edinson) Cavani.

“The lad’s extraordinary and has filled the void left by Cavani brilliantly. It’s great to watch him. He’s a real danger for opponents.

“I see Cavani is a more individualistic forward – more selfish. He was very central, whereas Higuain is all over the pitch participating in team play.”
