Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain feels he's a better player for leaving Real Madrid.

Higuain is in his first season in Serie A.

"Here in Italy, all the teams, they play with an extra defender, something that does not happen in Spain," Higuain has reflected.

"But, in Italy, it makes you stronger because there are few spaces. I have not found, therefore, many differences - it is clear that there are, but they are not so obvious.

"Besides Juventus, the League leaders, there are more or less the same points totals of the others, as in other leagues."
