Gervinho fires Parma past Cagliari

The former Arsenal star notched his second goal of the season to help the Crusaders clinch a comfortable win at Ennio Tardini

Gervinho was on the scoresheet as Parma defeated Cagliari Calcio 2-0 in Saturday’s Italian Serie A encounter.

The former Arsenal forward joined the men in the Yellow and Blues stripes last month on a free transfer from Hebei China Fortune to end his three-year stay in China.

The Cote d'Ivoire international scored his second goal of the season in the 47th minute after Roberto Inglese had earlier opened the scoring for Roberto D'Aversa’s men in the 20th minute.

Gervinho was replaced by Massimo Gobbi with five minutes left to play as the Crusaders returned to winning ways after a five-game winless run.

The victory saw Parma moved to the seventh spot in the league log with seven points from five games.

They take on Napoli in their next league game at Stadio San Paolo on September 26.
