Gonzalo Higuain still insists he made the right choice to leave Napoli for Juventus and believes they can win the UCL.
The Argentine is yet to win the competition, as he left Real Madrid before Ancelotti won the 10th UCL trophy for them.
However, he is confident of winning it with Juventus, but will have to overcome Porto in the last-16 first.
“We can win the Champions League, but we have to be calm,” Higuain told La Stampa ahead of the first leg at Estadio do Dragao on Wednesday.
“I know we’re a strong team and I know we can get to the end. So we have to start that journey away at Porto.”
Higuain incurred the wrath of Napoli’s passionate supporters by swapping the Partenopei for Turin, but the forward has no qualms about the merits of the switch.
“Playing with the best players makes you improve, it’s logical,” he said.
“Whoever you are, you can always learn.
“All you have to do is look at Gigi [Buffon], he’s won everything but he still trains like a kid. That’s true for Dani Alves and other team-mates too.
“It’s hunger that makes you win, even if you’ve done it before.
“I know I made the right choice, I don’t feel any pressure. In fact, it’s a privilege for me to think that they bought me while thinking about winning in Europe.”
