Gonzalo Higuain announced on Monday that he would retire from professional football at the end of the season. The current Miami forward, who has scored 14 goals in 26 games this year, announced his decision during a press conference and was heartbroken as he told reporters and the world about his plans for the future: “After 17 years, it’s time to saying goodbye. The most important mission for me has always been to never give up,” he said during a press conference.

Before joining Inter Miami from Juventus in the Italian Serie A (all Serie A matches can only be viewed on Paramount+), Higuain played for some of the most important clubs in Europe. He first joined Real Madrid in the Spanish La Liga after leaving his boyhood club River Plate in Argentina, and also played for Napoli and Milan in Italy and Chelsea in England.

Higuain will retire after a very positive season in which he scored 12 goals and provided two assists in his team’s last 14 games. Inter Miami still have two regular season games remaining and are looking to secure a spot in the MLS playoffs, where they currently sit seventh and last in the Eastern Conference with 45 points in 32 games. Miami will play Orlando City on Wednesday night and Montreal on Sunday. El Pipita joined Inter Miami in the middle of their 2020 expansion campaign and his retirement will also open up the club’s designated player slot for next season.

In total, Higuain has scored over 300 goals and provided over 100 assists in over 700 appearances for all the clubs he has played for. At international level, Higuain scored 31 goals in 75 matches, the fifth most of any player in Argentine history. He has appeared in three FIFA World Cups, including the 2014 final lost to Germany, and also appeared in three Copa América tournaments, helping Argentina reach the final twice. Higuain was named to the Serie A Team of the Year three times, was named to the UEFA Europa League Team of the Season twice and was named Juventus Player of the Year twice. He has also won three La Liga titles, three Serie A titles, a UEFA Europa League title, a Copa del Rey title and three Coppa Italia titles.
