Gonzalo Higuain will face the wrath of a scorned lover when he returns to Napoli for the first time since his move to bitter rival team Juventus. The love Napoli fans had for Higuain swiftly turned to hatred following his transfer for an Italian-record 90 million euros ($100 million) after scoring 36 goals last season to break a 66-year-old Serie A record. Higuain's reception is expected to include a barrage of whistles and insults.When the transfer was announced in July, Napoli fans publicly threw their Higuain shirts, banners and scarves into the trash.Outside San Paolo Stadium at Napoli matches this season, vendors sell toilet paper with Higuain's image printed on it, while his injury earlier this season was widely celebrated in Naples, with one restaurant even offering pizzas at 99 cents to celebrate the player's misfortune.Napoli are third in Serie A, two points behind Roma and 10 behind Juventus.
