Gervinho Happy with Result Over Napoli

Ivorian winger Gervinho was satisfied with his team’s 3-2 victory over Napoli. The former Arsenal man was named ‘Man of the Match’ after he bagged a brace versus Rafa Benitez’ men.

Towards the end, it was a great reaction?
“The goal right after the restart hurt us, but then we had the courage to try until the very end. The result gives us strength for the return leg.”

What is it like to celebrate under the Curva Sud?
“It’s great to share my happiness with the supporters and my teammates.”

You stated that Garcia is like a father to you, has he made a difference for you?
“Garcia is a coach who likes to play offensively and filled the hearts of many players with confidence. I chose Roma because Garcia was there.”

You’re faster than Bolt (laughs)?
“It depends if we’re running with or without a ball. If we ran with a ball, then I’d win, but if we ran without a ball then he’d win.”
