While one of these ivorians could be saying bye to football soon the other is about to begin a new chapter of his footballing career.24yrs Old Gervais Yao Kaussoi popularly known as Gervinho recntly signed a £10.5million deal at the red half of northlondon and his un-official debut for the club shows why a little know ivorian could cost so much having in mind Arsene Wenger Spending philosophy.
Sure critics would say "Twas just a pre-season game" but we all know that 2goals in 16mins is no mean feat specially for a man playing wit his team mates for the first time.Is pace,skill,strength and desire to win is what give him an Edge over quite a number of players.Gervinho wit 18assist and 15goals helped OSC lille as they ended a 52yr trophyless tenure.He surely is the Messiah to put an End to Arsenal 6yrs trophyless seasons.
After the cologne game on Saturday Frank lampard tweeted "Gervinho scores 2 goals for arsenal and arsenal fans are already calling him the best striker in the world.Don't worry he'll help u fight relegation"
A good reply to that tweet came from comical arsenal fan @eboue_eboue.His tweet read "torres 18apperances 1goal,Gervinho 16mins 2goals"
COMETH THE MAN,COMETH THE MOMENT!!!!
