Malaga striker Ruud van Nistelrooy rates former Real Madrid teammate Gonzalo Higuain as the "complete player".

Van Nistelrooy was at Real when Higuain first arrived.

"He has improved a lot since he arrived," said the former Manchester United star. "Before, he was a kid and is now a mature and experienced player.

"He knows exactly what to do when finishing, he is now a very complete player."
