Gervinho: I want to be better than Pires at Arsenal 2

Gervinho Has said that he has gained more experience from his first season in the premiership football and is saying that he will improve his game and succeed in the premiership.



Gervinho has said commented that he will want to bring big impact on the team as Robert Pires, and to do better than the Frenchmen done.

Pires spent six years in north London, helping the Gunners to claim two Premier League titles and three FA Cup wins as well as reach the final of the Champions League in 2006, where they lost to Barcelona.

Gervinho says he draws inspiration from the Frenchman and is hoping he can use that to improve his form in his second season with  his team Arsenal.

“Robert Pires is a fantastic player, very experienced, and I saw this for myself (when he was) training here,” he told Arsenal Player.

“I really hope to emulate Robert Pires in my second season, hopefully do even better, but I hope to carve out my own niche of course.

“I hope to push on personally, also to progress with the team and to showcase my qualities. I’ve learnt lots of things, coming to a new club, being new to the Premier League. I’ve learnt to adapt on the pitch and, when I think back, also in front of goal.

“I may have to change the way I play, mix up my game a bit, but as I said, I’ve learnt and can take a lot from my first season. I’ll relish the challenge and I really want to show the club and the fans [what I can do] this year.”

Gervinho the Ivory Coast international scored only four goals last season and has given a statement that he will give it all he has.

“I’ll have to give even more and raise the bar even higher after my first season here,” he added.
