The Brazilian was a mysterious player during the Spalletti era. Nowadays, Gerson is a qualitative and reliable option for Roma and for its coach Di Francesco.
Eusebio Di Francesco should be praised for what he has tactically done so far. But the Italian coach seems to be a master in boosting the qualities of his players. The Brazilian midfielder Gerson is his best victory thus far.
Gerson made the difference in Roma’s Serie A away win over Fiorentina. Once more, he played on the right side of the offensive trio together with Dzeko and El Shaarawy. The Brazilian performed a lusty match helping his teammates in both phases and keeping the Lupi balanced.
After having performed well in the Champions League clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Di Francesco started him in another historically difficult stage for Roma. The Artemio Franchi has never been friendly with the giallorossi but Gerson demonstrated tactical wisdom and mental strength. Yesterday, he also scored a brace helping Roma to collect three deserved points and reduce the gap with Napoli and Inter.
