Remember him, Arsenal fans?
Gervinho was a man who polarised opinion during his time in the Premier League.
At times he showed sparks of brilliance, however the rest of his Gunner’s stint was filled was frustration and blunders.
Since departing north London, the Ivorian has had spells with Roma and Hebei China Fortune.
Gervinho returned to Serie A this summer, signing for newly-promoted Parma. As it goes, he’s actually doing quite well.
At 31-years-old, it seems as though, just like a fine wine, the winger is getting better with age.
The Ivorian has netted twice in four games for his latest club, including a consolation strike in the clash with Juventus.
Gervinho came desperately close to ruining Cristiano Ronaldo’s day. There’s just something brilliantly poetic about that.
The crowning glory of his season so far came in his latest game, when Parma hosted Cagliari.
Sit back and enjoy…
Gervinho’s solo-effort is drawing comparisons with George Weah’s famous goal for AC Milan against Verona in 1996.
The world-class striker ran the entire length of the pitch to score a wondergoal that is still regarded as one of the very best of all time.
Gervinho or Weah, who did it better?
The Ivorian’s strike was the final goal of the game, with Parma running out 2-0 winners over Cagliari.
The victory took Gervinho’s side up to 7th in the Serie A table. Champions League next season, anyone?
I vaguely remember Gervinho having a good start to life at Arsenal.
Gunners fans all thought he might well be the answer, but the joy was only short-lived.
Presumably he will suffer his routine transition into a shocking player?
