Gervinho: The pressure is on City

Roma’s Gervinho spoke to TuttomercatoWeb ahead of Wednesday’s match against Manchester City:

“City is obligated to win. The pressure is all on them – not Roma. City are in the same period as Chelsea before winning the Champions League – until you win the trophy, everything is more complicated. The Champions League is a trophy that investors want so because of this, the pressure on City is greater.”
