Sky Sports pundit piles praise on Arsenal’s Jorginho

The Italian has stepped into proceedings this season with aplomb and turned opinion very much around when it comes to some Arsenal fans.

Jorginho, alongside Declan Rice in midfield, has been pivotal in helping Arsenal on their current winning run.

And speaking about the former Chelsea man on Sky Sports today, Stephen Warnock has said that he feels Jorginho is quite simply a brilliant football player.

“I just think his distribution of the ball, his understanding of where to be on the pitch is outstanding. His awareness of what’s around him, the thought that goes into every pass into a player is ‘how would I want to receive the pass’. His passes come with a message. It tells you where they want you go, where the space is. He helps you out as a player. I think he’s an exceptionally gifted footballer, he’s not a world-class footballer, but he’s exceptionally gifted,” Warnock said.
