Former Chelsea striker, Gonzalo Higuain has revealed that he was really suffering from social media attacks.
The legendary striker recently announced his retirement from professional football.

The former Argentina international, who currently plays in the Major League Soccer, will quit football at the end of the current season.
He slammed the toxic social media culture of football and believes hate comments across various platforms are really hurtful.
“There’s kind of a toxic feeling around football on social media. You can’t imagine the damage that comments on social networks do,” the Argentine said as quoted by football expert, Fabrizio Romano.
“I was really suffering, my family helped me. So, people should think before attacking others on social media – it’s a really serious topic.”
