Gervinho happy with inaugural season at Roma

The Ivory Coast Football Federation released an interview this afternoon given by Roma attacker Gervinho:

The season with the club…
“This is a season that I can call good. Because we have achieved the goals that were set by the leaders. We managed to reach automatic qualification for the Champions League. Executives, fans, players: everyone was pleased with the team. So we had a good season.”

Adapting at Roma was easy for you?
“Yes, thankfully. Because I already knew the coach and I enjoyed his confidence. After, I quickly integrated into the group.”
