EPL: One of the most intelligent players – Arteta hails Arsenal midfielder

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has named Jorginho as one of the most intelligent players in his squad.

Arteta has worked with some top players at the Emirates and also during his time as assistant to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

But the Spaniard has highlighted how Jorginho took charge at Villa Park last weekend, delivering instructions from the bench while he served a one-match touchline ban.

“He is one of the most intelligent players that I have coached, for sure.

“The detail he can go into, to understand what is happening, not individually, but what’s actually happening in life, in the game, and how to correct it. And, then, how he can attract the attention of his team-mates to listen to him and do what he’s telling them to do, is really impressive.

“You use him because he is always there, when he’s on the bench, like another coach,” Arteta said.
