The retired Kenyan international has been at the club since March 2020 after leaving Spurs following their run-up to the Champions League final under Mauricio Pochettino in 2019.

He has since risen through the ranks at the club to be handed the captain's armband. His role at the club has become crucial after he played an integral part in helping the side finish second in the regular season of the Eastern Conference, as Capital Sports reports.

Gonzalo Higuain to retire from playing football at the end of the season

He becomes the recent player to announce that he will be leaving his MLS side at the end of the season. Sports Brief had earlier reported that Gonzalo Higuain could not fight back his tears as he announced his decision to call time on his illustrious playing career, which has seen him play in Spain, Italy, England and now the United States.

Higuain's decision to draw the curtain on his career comes in the wake of a fine goal-scoring form for Major League Soccer (MLS) side Inter Miami, scoring 12 goals in his last 14 matches.

The 34-year-old's playing career has been littered with a truckload of trophies while playing for some of Europe's premier clubs - Real Madrid, Juventus, AC Milan, Chelsea and Napoli.
