Juventus coach Pirlo: I've told Higuain to leave

Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo admits it's time for Gonzalo Higuain to move on.

Pirlo admits he's spoken to the veteran striker.

“I spoke to Higuain. He's a person I admire very much, he had an important period here and was a great player," Pirlo said at a press conference.

“But we decided that our paths must be divided. He was a great champion, but the cycles end. He was put aside but as a serious person, we spoke to each other and made this decision.

“As for [Sami] Khedira, he's injured. We'll see when he gets better."
