Gonzalo Higuain doesn’t need to prove anything and belongs in the Argentina squad, according to Juventus teammate Paulo Dybala.

Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli has opted for Mauro Icardi over Higuain since taking over the job earlier this year, however Dybala has no doubt about his teammates class.

“The fans want him, he’s a great player.” Dybala told TyC Sports

“Gonzalo strives and always gives his best. He dreams of being here. He doesn’t need to prove anything.

“My transfer? Joining Juventus was an important step for me. I’ve achieved some of my objectives here.

“I’m feeling well in Turin. When I go out, the fans recognise me and greet me. I try not to be always stuck indoors.

“Typical day? I wake up early for training and go home at three in the afternoon. I have my family and friends [nearby] and I try to stay with them as much as possible.

“World Cup? I watched the 2014 Final with my Palermo teammates, Munoz and Vazquez.

“I dreamed of playing in it. Now I want to share this experience with my teammates. I must work hard and do my utmost to help Messi and the rest of the team.”
