Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain has reportedly enlisted the help of a security unit after receiving death threats.
The 28-year-old, who is currently nursing a thigh strain, is believed to be concerned for his safety.
According to Italian magazine Novella 2000, Higuain is being kept under surveillance 24/7 by the Division of General Investigations and Special Operations.
The Argentine forward, who joined Juventus from Napoli in the summer, reportedly has protection from DIGOS whenever he leaves his home.
The Argentinean player is said to have received anonymous death threats and is reported to have confide to his closest friends to be very worried about his safety.”
Higuain is definitely not living the best moment of his year as he’d been harshly criticized by Argentinean fans due to his poor performances with his national team and the former Napoli striker is also out of action due to a muscle injury.
