Gervinho sees silverware in Arsenal future
Arsenal forward Gervinho has predicted that the Gunners will win a trophy in the near future according to the Independent.
Arsene Wenger’s side have not won a trophy since beating Manchester United on penalties after a 0-0 draw to win the FA Cup in 2005. Gervinho is reported as saying: “We can still win lots of trophies and we can do great things in the future. We have a bright future because this is a good club.”
Gervinho joined Arsenal in summer 2011, in what the Independent tally as a £10.5m transfer from French champions Lille. The 24-year-old Ivory Coast international spent two years with Lille after transferring from Le Mans, scoring 28 goals in 72 games.
Since moving to the Emirates Stadium Gervinho has 31 appearances, finding the net on four occasions and was sent off on his Arsenal debut after an incident with Joey Barton, then of Newcastle United.
Gervinho was also part of the Ivory Coast squad that reached the Africa Nations Cup 2012 final, playing five out of his country’s six games and scoring once, but missing a decisive penalty in the final shootout with eventual champions Zambia.
