Gervinho and Radja Nainggolan welcomed Roma’s Champions League draw with Bayern Munich, Manchester City and CSKA Moscow.
The Giallorossi made their return to the competition for the first time since 2011 and were plunged straight into the Group of Death.
“Big teams! That’s why we are in the Champions League! Forza Roma” wrote Gervinho on Twitter.
Belgium international Nainggolan took a slightly more sarcastic approach and joked: “It’s nothing!”
It’ll be a very special moment for Mehdi Benatia, who only completed his transfer to Bayern Munich yesterday and immediately comes face to face with his old teammates.
