Gonzalo Higuain, A Bizarre Suggestion For Lazio's Short Term Solution

A teasing and retro-fashioned proposal was circulating on social media, but many wanted another update: "Sarri, why didn't you persuade Higuain to postpone his retirement from football and stay in Rome for six months?" someone asked.

Pipita, who just said goodbye to football, played his last game with Miami, in the MLS, he decided to hang up his boots at the age of 35, the same age as Benzema, who had just won the Ballon d'Or.

Higuain has had enough to say, explaining that he wants to retire when he's in good shape, he doesn't want to drag himself down, and he scored 16 goals in 28 appearances last season, some of them beautiful. Pipita said he wanted to study as a mental coach so he could stay in sports and football in a new role.

In Rome, however, some dream of a reunion with Sarri, a coach who improved the Argentine's character more than anyone and led him to a single-season Serie A scoring record (36). A record that would be tied by Immobile four years later.  

The relationship between the two is quite special, similar to the father-son relationship. The Argentines rose under the leadership of the commander. The pair played in Naples together before playing in Turin during the 2019-20 season, when Higuain scored 11 goals between the League and the Cup.

Many are now dreaming that Sarri can once again persuade Pipita to return to the field and take on the final challenge of having two record holders of the Italian championship in the squad.  

A utopia? Possibly, mostly because the Argentine seems convinced he's said enough, but who knows, a call from the former coach might change Higuain's plans and convince him to experience some kind of "last dance" too.
