Arsenal star Jorginho says that Mikel Arteta reminds him of his former Chelsea and Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri.

Jorginho switched Stamford Bridge for the Emirates in a £12million deadline day transfer in January and seems to have already settled in well at his new club.

While there was some apprehension over the deal, the midfielder has already made a big contribution, playing a huge part in Arsenal’s comeback win over Aston Villa that restored the Gunners’ Premier League lead.

The 31-year-old has already spoken out about why he decided to join Arsenal, citing the chance to work under Arteta as one of the main factors and so far he’s enjoying life under the Spanaird.

And it’s easy to see why, as Jorginho compared his manager to one of his former bosses who he is very close to, telling BeIn Sports: ‘He [Arteta] reminds me a little bit of Sarri.

‘I am used to working with a manager that looks into the details. For me, details make the difference in the end between a good team and a winning team.

‘I am sure, 100%, that he worships [the details] so much. I’ve only been here a short time but I’m sure every day there is going to be something new and that’s why I’m so excited as well because I can see that I have so much to learn here.’

Jorginho first worked under Sarri in 2015 when the manager moved to Napoli and the Italian international came to be a pivotal player for the current Lazio boss.

So much so, that in 2018 he reportedly turned down the chance to sign for Manchester City so he could join Sarri at Chelsea when he replaced Antonio Conte.

They won the Europa League, beating Arsenal in the final, but 2018/19 was the only season they would spend together in England as Sarri left to manage Juventus.

Joginho would go onto work under Frank Lampard, Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter, making 213 appearances in total for the Blues, winning the Champions League and Club World Cup as well as Euro 2020 with Italy.

He’ll hope to add the Premier League to his trophy collection this season, with Arsenal two points clear of City ahead of their trip to Leicester on Saturday.
