Parma coach D'Aversa slams wantaway Gervinho

Parma coach Roberto D'Aversa slammed Gervinho after Saturday's 2-2 draw with Cagliari.

The striker attempted to force through a deadline day move to Al Sadd, only for it to fall through due to delays in the paperwork.

D'Aversa said, "We'll see what happens, but I would just like to point out Gervinho had his best couple of seasons for many years because he had a team willing to work hard to create the chances for him.

“If you don't mind, I really do not want to talk about Gervinho this evening. I want to talk about Colombi, Iacoponi, Kucka, lads who gave their all for this jersey and worked very hard this evening for an important result.

“We know what happened, we'll evaluate the situation and act consequently. What matters is the squad and they allowed Gervinho to get back to a high level after he basically stopped playing football professionally in China."
