Despite scoring a brace for AS Roma on Sunday against Palermo, Roma coach Rudi Garcia has rubbished talk
that the Ivory Coast star is his favourite player.
Media reports suggest that Garcia has treated the former Arsenal man differently after scoring a brace in their 4-2 win in the Serie A tie.
Gervinho scored a double as Roma claimed a 4-2 victory in the Serie A on Sunday, lifting them up to fourth in the
table. The Elephants international has now netted in three straight games in all competitions.
However, responding to claims that he treated Gervinho as a favourite, Garcia denied that was the case – rather insisting the 28-year-old was just another player.
“Whoever says that is talking nonsense. He plays when he’s on form, like he is now,” Garcia said to FourFourTwo.
“It wasn’t only about Gervinho today though. The whole team played well and we managed the lead well. “We put in a great first-half performance with some top-drawer football.”
