Jorginho played under Maurizio Sarri at Napoli and then Chelsea before the Italian coach left for Juventus.

Speaking to beIN SPORTS via The Mirror, Jorginho claimed that Arteta reminds him of Sarri, stating that the two managers’ attention to detail was alike.

Jorginho believes that the details make the difference between a good team and a winning team, and he is confident that Arteta shares that same belief.

“He [Arteta] reminds me a little bit of Sarri,’ Jorginho said. ‘

“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 per cent, 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.”

The 31-year-old’s comparison between Arteta and Sarri is not surprising, given that both managers have similar playing styles and philosophies.

Sarri is known for his “Sarriball” style of play, which involves quick passes, high pressure, and possession-based football.

Similarly, Arteta has implemented a possession-based style at Arsenal, with an emphasis on high pressing and quick transitions.

Jorginho’s comments are a testament to the impact that both managers have had on him as a player.

He has enjoyed success under both Sarri, winning the Champions League with Chelsea and now with Arteta he is chasing the Premier League title with Arsenal.

Jorginho’s goal against Aston Villa last week was a glimpse of his potential impact on the Gunners’ midfield for the rest of the season.

As Arsenal continue their quest for the Premier League title, Jorginho’s experience and insights could prove invaluable.

His comparison between Arteta and Sarri highlights the importance of attention to detail and a clear playing philosophy.

As Arsenal aim to re-establish themselves as a top team in English football, Arteta’s similarities to Sarri could prove crucial in their success.

Jorginho’s praise for both managers is a testament to their impact on the game and their ability to inspire players to reach their potential.
