Gervinho to be rested against Catania?

Today’s newspaper edition of Leggo claims that Rudi Garcia is ready to grant Gervinho, one of Roma’s revelations of the season, a rest against Sicilian outfit Catania this weekend.

Rudi Garcia will likely hand the Ivory Coast international, who has played 90 minutes in all but 9 matches this season, a break and give Alessandro Florenzi and Adem Ljajic respective starts on the wing, while Francesco Totti will line-up through the middle in his usual center-foward position.
