Gonzalo Higuain dedicated his goal to Milan Coach Gennaro Gattuso and committed himself to the club after ending his drought.
He hadn’t found the net since October 28, but got the winner in a 2-1 result against SPAL this evening.
“It was an important goal and three fundamental points after all we’ve wasted before, but now we can have a rest with our families,” the striker told DAZN.
Just before the goal, Pipita had been jeered by the San Siro crowd for his sluggish performance and evident lack of confidence, fuelling reports of an imminent Chelsea move.
“It’s natural the fans expect more from me. I came to Milan because I was convinced by the project here and I want to continue like this.
“Gattuso has always supported me and above all been honest. This goal is for him.”
Milan had Suso sent off and he’ll therefore be suspended for the Italian Super Cup clash with Juventus.
“Now we’ve got the Supercoppa, it’s the first trophy of the season and we want to win.”
