UEFA to investigate Gonzalo Higuain gesture?

  • 9 month ago

Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain could face disciplinary action from UEFA after he flipped his middle finger at Barcelona fans following his side's 3-0 defeat at Camp Nou last night.

The 29-year-old was caught on camera responding with his finger as he was jeered by jubilant Barca fans during the contest, which saw Lionel Messi score twice either side of an Ivan Rakitic strike.

The incident came in the 87th minute of the game when he was substituted off by Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri and could now result in him receiving a substantial fine and a ban.

The former Real Madrid forward has now gone 12 games drawing a blank against Barca, having failed to find the net in 10 appearances for Los Blancos and two for Juve.

Higuain has got his domestic season off to a promising start, meanwhile, scoring twice and registering an assist in the first three Serie A games of the season.
