Former Juventus striker Paolo Rossi has admitted he can't understand why Gonzalo Higuain was left out of Juve's clash with Inter.

Serie A: Higuain axe bemuses Rossi

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.”
