Ex-Inter Jonathan: “Gerson will do well.”


Former Inter and current Fluminense defender Jonathan spoke to globoesporte.globo.com today about Roma’s Brazilian midfielder Gerson, here are his words:

“If I could give some suggestions to Gerson and have I spoke in Italian with him? I have not had the chance to speak in Italian with Gerson because it’s not (his) best thing. He needs to work hard to learn Italian as quickly as possible. My mistake was thinking that it would be easy, but it took me almost a year and a half. When I was at Inter, there were many Brazilians and I was among them. I still talk to Gerson, he has great quality. The football in Italy is much more intense, players are faster and more prepared, they are perfect tactically. If you do not run into space you suffer, he must play with 1-2 touches. He’s a good guy, he will do well.”
