Il Corriere dello Sport: Gerson is ready to make a Europa League start tomorrow against Romanian side Astra Giurgiu.
Both the player and Walter Sabatini have come under fire because of the Brazilian’s lack of performance. The player has not lived up to his €16.6 million price tag. However, the club is calm. Why? Because even Daniele De Rossi began this way with Roma: start in Europe then begin the acclimatization to Serie A.
Tomorrow will be an important opportunity: to date, Gerson has shown he is not ready for Roma. With the burden of his high price tag, some believe the future of the boy is doomed, despite being only 19 years old.
