Gervinho may perhaps have scored a brace for Roma, but Rudi Garcia insisted he had no favourites.
Roma coach Rudi Garcia denied he treated Gervinho favourably right after the forward’s starring part against Palermo.
Gervinho scored a brace as Roma claimed a 4-2 victory inside the Serie A on Sunday, lifting them up to fourth within the table.
The Ivory Coast international has now netted in three straight games in all competitions.
Responding to claims he treated Gervinho as a favourite, Garcia denied that was the case – rather insisting the 28-year-old was just a different player.
“Whoever says which is speaking nonsense. He plays when he’s on form, like he is now,” Garcia mentioned.
“It wasn’t only about Gervinho these days even though. The whole team played effectively and we managed the lead effectively.
“We place within a great first-half functionality with some top-drawer football.”
Miralem Pjanic, Alessandro Florenzi and Gervinho struck in the opening 27 minutes in the Stadio Renzo Barbera.
Alberto Gilardino and Giancarlo Gonzalez, the latter inside the 91st minute, got Palermo back in to the game prior to Gervinho’s sealer.
Garcia stated he by no means doubted his group would respond as he lauded Roma, who have scored a league-high 17 objectives this season.
“I’m always relaxed. I operate to enhance this group,” he stated.
“You have to bear in mind we have a lot of new faces this season and have had some injuries as well. I am confident.
“There are a great deal of positives indicators, such as the truth we’ve the most effective attack in Serie A. I also just like the guys’ mentality. This really is a united group that fights.
“We now want to find out to perform that all through the 95 minutes, as we’ve currently shown against Juventus and Barcelona by the way.”
