Inter Miami striker Gonzalo Higuain says retirement talk is ‘misunderstanding’

Inter Miami striker Gonzalo Higuain has insisted no decision has been made on his future despite widespread speculation that he’ll retire at the end of the 2022 season.

On Monday, Higuain’s father, Jorge, gave an interview to TNT Sports in Argentina stating he would call it a day after this season.

“I don’t see him returning to Argentina, because of what he told me that he is going to retire from football at the end of this year. This year ends and he retires from the sport,” Jorge said.

But speaking to reporters following a training session on Tuesday, Higuain sought to clarify the situation, insiting no decision has been made on his future and that his father ‘misspoke’.

“It was a misunderstanding he had with me,” Higuain said. “I never told him I was retiring. He misspoke, and that can happen, but this is very far from reality. I am focused on my club, on fulfilling my contract and when the time comes, if that decision is made, I will be the one communicating it, only me.”
