Naughty! Napoli’s Gonzalo Higuain picked up a deliberate yellow card v Genoa so as not to miss Roma game

Gonzalo Higuain turned a trick in Napoli’s draw with Genoa yesterday.

The Argentine striker was on 4 yellow cards, and saw his perfect chance to collect his 5th and hence get himself a clean slate, and be ready and available for the crunch game against Roma.

So El Pipita bade his time, and landed a late, clumsy tackle on a Genoa defender, provoking the ref’s ire just enough in order to get a deliberate booking.

Naughty!

But hey, it worked, and nobody can prove it, even if we all know what Higuain was up to…
