Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti admits he didn't want Real Madrid to sell Gonzalo Higuain.
Higuain left for Napoli and made a record move to Juventus last summer.
“I didn't want him to leave Real Madrid, but I couldn't convince him to stay. He wants to play regularly and he chose Napoli…,” he told Tuttosport.
“The 90 million euros which Juventus paid for Higuaín is money well spent, the best players cost money; and Higuaín is the best out-and-out No.9 in the world alongside Luis Suárez and Lewandowski.”
On Barcelona star Lionel Messi, he added: “He's an incredible talent, a truly great player. If for circumstances I ended up coaching him, I'd be very happy. But if not, I won't resort to pulling my hair out (laughs).”
