Gervinho’s return delayed

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Roma’s Gervinho is still facing issues regarding his visa, which is required for him to enter the United States and join his teammates on the Giallorossi’s US tour.

Gervinho was set to arrive in Philadelphia this afternoon, but the Ivorian was informed this morning that the US embassy hasn’t issued his visa, yet. Gervinho has changed his flight to tomorrow, but it’s becoming more unlikely that Gervinho will be able to join his teammates in the United States and he may have to wait for the team to return to Rome.
