Mikel Arteta has been speaking ahead of Arsenal facing West Ham United this weekend in the Premier League gave big round of applause to Jorginho. The Gunners boss goes into the game fresh off the back of a brilliant win over Liverpool in the Premier League.
Of course, a number of his key players did the business against Liverpool. But one of whom was former Blues midfielder, Jorginho. The Italian was given man of the match. And he was lauded for his cool head in the middle of the park for the Gunners.
What Arsenal manager Arteta had to say about Jorginho
Arteta went on to say that:
“I’m really happy with him, that’s all I can say on that. The contract situation is more for Edu and the board to manage. But his implication and his capacity he has in big games to affect matches is tremendous and he was great against Liverpool,”
Yes, going into the future, Arsenal might need someone a bit different. This is to come into the squad. But for now, Jorginho is a key player and will have big moments between now and the end of the season.
Arsenal might end up falling short of the title. This is in the end given how good Man City and Liverpool are.
But if they do manage to sneak it. Then you can bet your bottom dollar that Jorginho has played a key role in delivering that success.
There were those who doubted Mikel Arteta when he decided to splash out around £12m. This is on signing Jorginho but over time it’s proved a masterstroke.
The experienced midfielder is ideal in those pressure-cooker style games. This is what we saw last weekend with Liverpool.
