Gervinho: Roma move has improved me

Gervinho says he's a better player for his move to AS Roma.

The former Arsenal attacker left for Roma in 2013.

I've learned a lot in Italy, and not just in terms of football," the winger told Sky Italia.

"I feel good here in Rome, and I get on well with my teammates. I have a peaceful life.

"Italian football and English football are different.

"I learned a lot in the Premier League, where it's difficult to play against the smaller sides if you're a big club, because they play very quick football and really put you under pressure.

"In Italy it's the opposite. It's very tactical, and more complicated if you don't know the style."
