Arsenal outcast Gervinho has insisted that he didn't learn anything whilst playing for the Gunners, reports Sky Italia

The Ivorian ace struggled with life at the Emirates and rarely featured for Arsene Wenger's side, and was consequently sold to Roma in the summer. 

And now, the Gunners flop has hit out at the club and insisted that he's learning much more under Roma boss Rudi Garcia.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Gervinho said: "The fundamental difference between the Roma and Arsenal is the coach. Garcia here gives me confidence, I know that he believes in me. When I wake up in the morning, I really like going to work: I can not wait to train and stay with my coach and my teammates.

"In Italy the people are great. Rome is wonderful and the passion for football is strong, but a lot of these qualities were also in England.What I learned at Arsenal? Honestly, not so much, because you can learn a lot if you're on the bench."

The winger has insisted that he left north London because he wasn't being given game time, which was consequently affecting his confidence. 

He continued by saying: "I left England because I was not playing. Almost always be among the reserves was the worst thing for me and for my confidence."

Gervinho certainly seems to be enjoying life in Italy, as he's a regular starter for Garcia's side. Despite losing the winger in the summer, Arsenal have had a fine season so far and currently sit top of the Premier League table.

The Gunners are two points in front of their closest rivals Manchester City and Chelsea and have the chance to steer five points clear of the chasing pack, if they can beat Liverpool at Anfield tomorrow lunch time.
