Higuain a doubt for Swansea clash

Napoli coach Rafa Benitez is hoping Gonzalo Higuain can recover in time for Thursday's match at Swansea in the last 32 of the Europa League.

The Argentina striker is doubtful for the encounter at the Liberty Stadium after hurting his back in Sunday's 2-0 triumph at Sassuolo.

Higuain sustained a knock on his back and we will have to evaluate his condition," Benitez said to www.sscnapoli.it.

It's early to evaluate whether he (will) play on Thursday or not.
