By Chimezie Nebolisa

Gonzalo Higuain will retire at the end of the 2022 Major League Soccer (MLS) season.

Higuain who joined MLS outfit Inter Miami since 2020, is Argentina’s fifth-highest scorer with 31 goals in 75 matches.

The 34-year-old announced his retirement at a press conference alongside Inter Miami head coach Phil Neville.

“The day has come to say goodbye to football. Three or four months ago I told the club, it wasn’t from one day to the next. I had been working on it for years. When I came here, I came for the pleasure of enjoying football, of my life, of having Fedeclose, my brother. It was another stage in my career, but I can tell you that it was one of the best moments of my career, and this club, my team-mates and the coaching staff gave it to me, who gave me back the desire to play football. I can now retire as I always dreamed, scoring goals and having fun playing the game” he told the press.

Higuain will be hoping to bow out on a high note, with Miami currently occupying the final play-off spot in the Eastern Conference with two games of the season remaining.
