Gervinho's switch was only rubberstamped last week.
â€śRoma is a great team with a great Coach,â€ť he said. â€śRoma showed interest in me and I had no hesitation in accepting their offer.
â€śI want to show I can contribute to this team.
â€śI 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.
â€śI have always had a good relationship with Garcia â€“ he has always given me confidence, and was the first to deploy me on the wing.
â€śIt was a real pleasure for me playing for Arsenal, but after two years of ups and downs it was time for a change."
