The winger has praised his manager Rudi Garcia, but slighted former boss Arsene Wenger.
Former Arsenal winger Gervinho has criticised Arsene Wenger, who signed him and then sold him for Arsenal, for not giving him enough of a chance to shine at the Emirates.
The Ivorian is quoted by Goal.com as suggesting that Wenger had little faith in his abilities, and feels that he could have played as well for Arsenal as he is now for Roma, if he had been given the chance.
“Wenger never had faith in me,” Gervinho said.

“(Rudi) Garcia does not differentiate between those who play and those who don’t. For a player that is important.
“He doesn’t speak more to you because you play and less with me because I don’t.
“For him there aren’t only 11 players; there are 25 players. Everyone has the same level, gets treated the same and gets spoken to in the same way.”
Rudi Garcia was coach Lille, where Gervinho had success before his move to London, and the Frenchman has got the Ivory Coast star playing well again in the Italian capital.
