Arsenal boss Wenger: Gervinho is a good player

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has defended the performance of Gervinho since his arrival from Lille.

Wenger was irritated by a question about the £11million transfer fee routinely bandied around for Gervinho's move from Lille in 2011.

"It was £8m," snapped back Wenger.

"Gervinho is a good player, but I don't want to get into individual assessments," he said. "You accuse us of not paying the wages, but then you accuse us of giving them the money they want."
