Higuain joined David Beckham's Inter Miami last month on a free transfer and reveals the club are giving him what he needs.

“I always followed MLS closely because my brother and other great players were there," the Argetine said on the Que Golazo podcast on CBS.

“But I wanted to come here with the intention of once again being happy while playing and I believe Inter Miami have given me everything I need.

“Coming here to this league gives me the sensation like when I was child and I had fun playing, that wasn't the case anymore in Europe for many reasons.

“I believe from a media standpoint, Europe was too much. I had to prove something match after match, which is something I did my entire career. They don't give you the time to enjoy the fact you play football.”
