Charles Watts has commended Jorginho’s impact at Arsenal since joining from Chelsea in the January transfer window.

Watts suggests that Jorginho, like Mikel Arteta, plays a significant role in managing the game from the sideline.

The Arsenal expert also mentioned that when the 31-year-old isn’t in the starting lineup, he acts as a coach to his teammates from the sidelines. He is someone the players admire, even away from the public eye, as Watts reported to Inside Arsenal.

Every time a Chelsea player transfers from Stamford Bridge to the Emirates Stadium, it is always a huge discussion, and the same happened when Jorginho made his £12 million transfer in the winter, as reported by Sky Sports.

Regrettably, his debut for Arsenal resulted in a defeat at the Goodison Park against Everton. Although, he made a memorable last-minute winning goal against Aston Villa.

The Gunners’ narrow failure to win the Premier League title last season still hurts the team’s supporters. Nevertheless, the players are trying to make up for it this year. Watts also shared his thoughts on Jorginho’s personality.

Jorginho, the Touchline Mentor

“What he does off the pitch,” said Watts. “The way he is in training. The way players look up to him. The leadership qualities he has. You see him on the touchline when he is a substitute. A lot of players who are substitutes will just be sulking around.

“You see, Jorginho, he almost manages the game from the touchline when he is doing the warm-ups. You can see the way he is coaching players. Coaching his teammates. Always one of the first players on the pitch to celebrate a goal. He is such a team player.”

Arsenal’s Roster Strength

The games are going to start coming thick and fast after the international break, including that highly anticipated comeback to the Champions League.

The depth of Arsenal’s roster will be put to the test in that situation, which is where players like Jorginho will play a very crucial role in the team.

The Italy international is completely aware that he isn’t a regular starter, but when club football resumes, major games will still happen every week, providing ample opportunities for him to contribute to the team.
