Rudi Garcia praises "rare" Gervinho

Roma coach Rudi Garcia believes that Gervinho has attributes that few players can match in the modern game.

Roma coach Rudi Garcia believes that Gervinho's unpredictable style has helped him become an instant hit in Serie A, describing the winger as a "rare" commodity in the modern game.

Gervinho left Arsenal to reunite with Garcia in the Italian capital and has become a firm favourite with the Giallorossi fans, scoring three times in eight games.

He told Sfide: "Gervinho is an unpredictable player and he is difficult to stop.

"There are not that many players who can dribble like Gervinho, he is rare."

Roma have made their best-ever start to a Serie A campaign under Garcia's guidance, with last week's 2-0 win over Napoli their eighth successive league victory.
