Gervinho: ‘The whistles? It means the fans expect a lot.’

Gervinho spoke to Sky Sport after his
goal and Roma’s 5-1 victory over Carpi:

“The whistles? They aren’t a pleasure, but it means that the fans expect a lot from me. I need their trust. Dzeko? It’s a shame he came off injured, I’m convinced he would’ve scored had he stayed on. The table? The season is only at the beginning: there isn’t a favorite, there are only great teams like AS Roma, in the end we will see.”
