Napoli sign Duvan Zapata
Benitez: Big win no surprise

Higuain, 25, needed numerous stitches following the accident on Monday, and Napoli's medical staff wants him to avoid physical contact with team-mates.

However, the Argentina international is expected to train normally later in the week and should be available for Saturday's match at Chievo Verona.

The accident happened a day after he had played well -- but not scored -- in the 3-0 win over Bologna that opened Napoli's Serie A season.

The striker was enjoying a day off, but spent the afternoon in a hospital after slipping while disembarking from a yacht onto nearby rocks.

Two stitches were required on his cheek with a further eight on his jaw, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport and the Corriere dello Sport.
