Struggling to find some time on the pitch in the early weeks of the new season, Jorginho had turned things around at Arsenal against Newcastle and Burnley.

Captaining the Gunners for both games, he found himself on the bench once again for the 1-0 win over Brentford, likely to be fresh for the midweek clash against RC Lens in the Champions League.

Over the course of the weekend, the Arsenal player gave an interview with Paramount Plus in Mexico, found and relayed by Gazzetta dello Sport.

During his chat with the outlet, the player was asked about various topics, including current manager Mikel Arteta, who was behind his arrival at the Emirates.

In fact, the midfielder only had nice things to say about the Spaniard: “Mikel is a great manager, because he wants the best from all his players and pushes everyone to the limit. I think he will win a lot in his career, because of who he is as a manager on the pitch and a person off it.”

Since arriving at Arsenal, the Italy international has made 31 appearances in all competitions, and assisted his teammates once after playing 219 times for Chelsea, where he was far more involved in attack, with 29 goals and eight assists.

He will now turn his attention to the aforementioned Champions League clash against Lens and the next Premier League game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
