Mention the name Gervinho to Arsenal fans and you'll likely be met with a series of foul mouth responses about the Ivorian forward whose hairline gained more notoriety than his goal scoring exploits during his time in North London.
Since his ill-fated spell with the Gunners, Gervinho has spent a couple of seasons with Roma and, in January, was one of several high profile footballers to make the move to the Chinese Super League. And he seems to be transitioning to life in the Far East with consummate ease.
During a match with Beijing Guoan, the former Lille man shifted past a challenge on the near touchline, knocked the ball round another defender and slammed his effort through the legs of the helpless goalkeeper.
The goal was worlds away from anything he mustered during his two seasons at the Emirates and must leave Arsenal fans wondering why they were not treated to this sort of display on a regular basis between 2011-13. Then again, maybe Gervinho has simply just finally found his level in China, hence his ability to pull goals like this out of the bag.
