Former Juventus striker Paolo Rossi has admitted he can't understand why Gonzalo Higuain was left out of Juve's clash with Inter.
The Argentina, who cost the Old Lady 90m euros this summer from Napoli, was a surprise omission from the starting line-up for the Derby d'Italia.
Rossi, who won two Serie A titles with the Turin outfit, cannot work out why Higuain was not given the nod to face Inter, as the Old Lady suffered a 2-1 defeat on Sunday.
He told Gazzetta dello Sport: “It [the result] was proof that nothing is obvious in football. Although Juventus are still under construction, I can’t understand how they can leave out Higuain.
“He’s very strong, no-one can dispute that, I don’t think he’d upset some sort of balance even if he’s playing with a phenomenon like [Paulo] Dybala who I think is the modern version of [Omar] Sivori.”
