Jorginho believes Arsenal are on the right path under Mikel Arteta and credits a collective work ethic for a change in the club’s fortunes.
The Italy international was recruited last January to bring experience and know-how to the Gunners midfield and he’s proved a canny signing in light of Thomas Partey’s injury struggles.
While his own future is in doubt – he’s 10 months through an initial 18-month contract and Arteta is yet to decide whether to activate a year-long extension – Jorgi believes Arsenal have a bright future ahead.
“We are in a good position because of the way we work, the way we constantly want to improve, the way we push to win matches,” he told Mexico’s version of Paramount Plus (via Gazzetta dello Sport).
“We are doing well and I think we are going in the right direction.”
“Mikel is a great coach,” he added. “He wants the best from all his players and pushes everyone to the limit.
“I think he will win a lot in his career, for what he is as a coach on the pitch and as a person off it.”
Elsewhere, Leandro Trossard says Arsenal’s late win over Brentford is another example of the team always believing they can find a goal.
As the clock ticked towards the 90th minute at the Community Stadium, it looked like the Gunners might have to settle for a point against a stubborn opponent. That was before Bukayo Saka found a couple of yards of space to curl a delicious ball onto the head of substitute Kai Havertz.
“We have belief,” the Belgian told Arsenal.com.
“We know that a goal can be scored in the 90th minute of a game. With the extra time now added on in every game, we play longer and you need to be focusing on those minutes.
“We’ve scored a lot of goals already this season in the last 10-15 minutes, so there is where you can decide games.”
