Former Arsenal attacker Gervinho is delighted with his move to AS Roma.

Gervinho's switch was only rubberstamped last week.

“Roma is a great team with a great Coach,” he said. “Roma showed interest in me and I had no hesitation in accepting their offer.

“I want to show I can contribute to this team.

“I am not in top condition at the moment, but Garcia knows me well and knows that I still have some work to do to get fit.

“I have always had a good relationship with Garcia – he has always given me confidence, and was the first to deploy me on the wing.

“It was a real pleasure for me playing for Arsenal, but after two years of ups and downs it was time for a change."
