Wenger considers Gervinhoâ€™s pace and movement to be a real threat to opposing teams and is delighted with the 25-year-oldâ€™s improved finishing.
â€śThe thinking was to use well his quality of movement and his pace,â€ť Wenger said. â€śBut of course you have to overcome a little bit of an obstacle that he doesnâ€™t correspond well to the traditional image you have of a central striker.
â€śI did that [changed position] with Robin van Persie. He was more a technical player, it was not obvious to put him as the central striker.
â€śI did it with Thierry Henry, I did it now with Gervinho and I think I will do it as well with Walcott.
â€śThey have other qualities that is well suited to our game. Our game is based on movement and technical ability and they have that.â€ť
