Rome:

Napoli's Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain had ten stitches on facial injuries after a fall on the holiday island of Capri, according to the ANSA news agency.

Higuain, 25, who joined Napoli from Real Madrid for 40 million euros ($53.5m) in the summer, apparently slipped on rocks as he stepped off a boat and cut his jaw and forehead.

He was treated at the island's Capilupi hospital where he had eight stitches in his cut jaw and two in another cut over his eyebrow.

Higuain, who made his debut for Napoli in Sunday's 3-0 opening day win over Bologna, was on a day out with his wife on the picturesque island in the bay of Naples, home to many milionaires.
