Higuain gets stitches after fall on boating trip in Capri

Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain was taken to a hospital and given stitches after suffering a head injury while on a boat trip with friends, according to numerous reports from Italy.

The Argentine striker, who made his debut for the Partenopei following his big-money move from Real Madrid on Sunday, slipped on rocks and injured his jaw while in the Marina Piccola in Capri.

He was promptly rushed to hospital where he received a number of stitches - eight to his jaw and two to his eyebrow. The 25-year-old remained conscious the whole time, was soon discharged and was greeted by two club medics at the hotel where he has lived since arriving at Stadio San Paolo.

Doctors are assessing his situation ahead of Saturday's match against Chievo, but he is expected to be at the club's training ground as usual on Tuesday.

Higuain started Napoli's 3-0 win over Bologna on Sunday, playing 84 minutes before being replaced by youngster Josip Radosevic.
