Gonzalo Higuaín gave the note in the celebrations that Juventus made by obtaining the Serie A and made all his teammates rave when – after receiving the champion medal – he made an eccentric dance pass imitating Michael Jackson.
The loudspeakers announced that it was coming “the player in jersey number 21, Gonzalo Higuaín”, and there the Pipita approached, received the medal and threw some dance passes backwards with perfect coordination. In the video you can see how the Colombian Juan Cuadrado tries to imitate him …
Juventus had already been crowned champion a week earlier when he beat Sampdoria 2-0 and after winning the title he relaxed and lost the following two matches: against Cagliari 2-0 and this Saturday he was thrashed in Turin 3-1 for Rome. Little did it matter: the delirium of the players when receiving the Cup was total.
The Argentine Paulo Dybala chose a celebration more unnoticed than that of Higuaín. And the one who returned to be in the center of the scene and monopolized all the flashes was the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo.

Higuain, who scored a goal, was a starter at Juventus – he finished Series A with 8 goals – while Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo cheered from the rostrum. The Cordovan because he has a muscle injury and the Portuguese star because he was preserved for the coming revenge against Olympique Lyon, for the Champions League.

In the first leg Juventus fell 1-0, so now they must overcome that result if they want to qualify for the quarterfinals and continue competing to win the maximum European title.
