Higuain thrilled with stunning Real Madrid victory
The scoreline was dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo's four goals.
"We are very happy and we must stay on this path, but the championship has just started and it is very long,” Higuain told Madrid’s official website. “I'm sure everything will be fine if we continue to be this ambitious. People should enjoy watching this team.
“It is a pleasure to play like this. The merit belongs to the players, the coaching staff and those who support us."
The Argentina international forward currently has four goals from seven league appearances but is not worried about winning the Pichichi Trophy.
"I don't care who is the competition's top scorer as long as he is a Real Madrid player,” said Higuain. “I am very happy for Ronaldo and for the entire team.
"We have the least scored upon goalkeeper and we are playing rather well. I always work for the team and I must do my job."
