Higuain targets Champions League glory with Real Madrid

Real Madrid are set to face Ajax in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Higuain said: “Mourinho is a winner; he’s always proved this. That’s why he was signed and we hope to take Real Madrid where it deserves together with him.

“The Champions League is an important competition and we hope to take the club to the very top in Europe, to the Wembley final. We’ve been eliminated in the Last 16 for some years now, something inadmissable at a club like Real Madrid.”

The 22-year-old added: “We shouldn’t worry about not scoring more form the many chances on goal we had on Saturday. What matters is that we continue to improve as a team. I hope we capitalise more on our chances against Ajax.

“We forwards feel comfortable when the three of us play together, but what’s important is that those who make the starting lineup do their best.”
