Columbus Crew ace Higuain: I don't take offence to people speaking of Gonzalo

Federico Higuain insists he is not bothered that his younger brother commands more attention than he does.

The 28-year old Columbus Crew forward shares the same family name as Real Madrid star Gonzalo Higuain but says it does not affect him to hear people want to talk about his younger sibling more often than they want to discuss his career.

"Honestly, it doesn't bother me that people want to talk about Gonzalo all the time," the Argentine told FIFA.com.

"I don't feel any bitterness. I have the pleasure of doing a job that I love and bearing a name that symbolises honesty and hard work."

Higuain, who has scored nine goals in 27 appearances since joining the Crew from Colon in July 2012, added: "We're a pretty relaxed family, and everyone makes his own decisions. We discuss things together, of course, but no-one forces anyone to do anything."
