    Higuain should not feel like a traitor – Allegri

    Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri believes no guilt should be attached to Gonzalo Higuain’s match-winning turn against his former club Napoli at Juventus Stadium.

    He made light of being the focus of pre-match attention against his former employers by scoring a 70th minute winner after Jose Callejon swiftly cancelled out Leonardo Bonucci’s opener for the hosts.
