Gervinho convinced Arsenal will soon end their wait for silverware
Arsenal forward Gervinho believes the Gunners have shown their team spirit by emerging from the difficult spells this term
Gervinho insists he has no doubt that Arsenal have learned from this season’s mistakes and will be well-placed to challenge for trophies next term.
The Gunners’ Premier League title bid faltered early on but Wenger’s men have found some form of late, moving them into third place in the table with eight games left to play.
Premature cup exits contributed to a turbulent campaign for the Gunners – but the Ivory Coast forward, who moved to Arsenal from Lille last summer for around £10.8m, is certain the north Londoners will be a force to be reckoned with next season.
“We have had and have been through a lot of difficult times this season,” Gervinho told Arsenal Player. “Lots of people have waivered in their belief in us, have said this and that, but we have returned to form.
“We are a group of young lads, we get on really well, but we have got stronger during the tough times and showed the real Arsenal. We are going to try and finish the season well and we are happy with that.
“We are all still young, have got some good players and a good group. We can still win lots of trophies and do great things in the future because we are a good club.”
Arsenal’s five-game winning run in the league started with their dramatic 5-2 win over local rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Emirates Stadium after finding themselves two goals down in the first half.
“The derby game was great and everything came together and clicked,” Gervinho added. “You saw how we played as a team, the result, how the team worked together and hit some form. That is how we should be and we can use that as a yardstick.”
