Parma chief Faggiano proud to clinch Gervinho deal

Parma director of sport Daniele Faggiano has welcomed their deal for Gervinho.

Gervinho terminated his deal with Hebei China Fortune and returns to Serie A after leaving Roma for China in January 2016.

Faggiano told Sky Sport Italia about how the surprise swoop for the ex-Arsenal attacker came about.

“The idea started from just discussing players with those characteristics. There's no harm in trying, so I gave it a go. The club made some sacrifices and I went for it.

“I read some figures that have been reported on his contract, but they are not realistic."
