Gonzalo Higuain, a former striker for Chelsea, has admitted that he was actually a victim of cyberbullying.
The storied striker just recently declared his retirement from the game of football.
The Argentine has really enjoyed a glittering career, playing for the top clubs in Europe, including Real Madrid, Juventus, and Napoli.
The former Argentina international, who currently plays in 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.
