Flamengo midfielder Gerson admits he ‘wasn’t ready’ for Serie A but credits Stefano Pioli for helping him become a ‘much more complete’ player.
Gerson struggled in his three seasons with Roma, playing just 42 times between 2016 and 2019, but has reinvented himself since joining Flamengo, winning the Copa Libertadores last year.
“I built this new beginning in Italy, from my second season at Roma to be precise,” he told Globo Esporte.
