      Gonzalo Higuain states his intent to repay the fans’ warmth with goals, victories and titles after netting Saturday’s match-winner against Fiorentina

      One game, one goal. Gonzalo Higuain’s Juventus career got up and running in earnest tonight, as he netted the Bianconeri’s winner in an all-important opening day victory over Fiorentina.

      Applauded by supporters throughout his decisive second-half showing, the striker was quick to thank his new adoring faithful: “It’s a great feeling to play here. The fans made me feel extremely welcome from the very moment I entered the pitch. I hope to pay them back with more goals, victories and titles.

      “When I’m playing I try to do my best to help the team and fortunately I’ve managed to score today. I’d like to dedicate this moment to everyone who has put their faith in me.”

      Higuain, who only took eight minutes to find the target after substituting Mario Mandzukic, would go on to reveal that staying composed and believing in himself formed the key to marking his league debut with a goal.

      “I’ve kept calm and confident that I would score, as it was always a question of working hard and not getting carried away. Luckily the goal came and we’ve won the game, which was the most important thing.”
