Gervinho loving freedom at Roma

Gervinho admits he's loving his football at AS Roma.

The former Arsenal winger has been revitalised since his move to the Giallorossi.

"Every experience has been positive and I appreciated all the different cultures I saw in my travels," he told the Corriere dello Sport.

"I can confirm I feel more at home at Roma than elsewhere. I was adopted by the club, the staff and the fans. From the first day I sensed this great atmosphere.

"Garcia has grown even more since I last worked with him. The title victory at Lille made him even more ambitious. I already knew his qualities and that he'd reach a big European club. He knows he needs to get results straight away and therefore demands the most from everyone.

"Garcia has a very special style. He often tells me that he knows my qualities better than anyone else. There are many players with talent, but it is important to find a Coach who knows how to make the most of that.

"Rudi was very good with me in that sense. He knows how to do what is best for the team and, at the same time, to let me be free with my football.

"I come from the streets with a family of 12 children. I put who and what I am into my football."
