Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes Ivory Coast forward Gervinho will take confidence from his goal in the African Nations Cup and return a better player for the Gunners.
Gervinho's winner in the semi-final victory over Mali set up a meeting with Zambia in the final on Sunday and Wenger is keen to see him back in an Arsenal shirt as soon as possible.
"It was a cracking goal against Mali," Wenger told Arsenal Player. "They were the better side but he made the difference. They scored only one goal, Gervinho made it and you can basically say he scored it on his own because he started on the halfway line and finished in a cool way."
