The former Chelsea midfielder have found a solid start to life in north London.

Mikel Arteta’s obsession with details is similar to Maurizio Sarri, according to Arsenal midfielder Jorginho.

The Italian midfielder was a key player under Sarri both at Napoli and Chelsea. He went on to make a surprise end to his Chelsea career when he left Stamford Bridge to join Arsenal last month.

But Jorginho says the Arsenal manager reminds him of his old boss in west London.

“He [Arteta] reminds me a little bit of Sarri,” Jorginho told BeIN Sport. “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 percent, 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.”

Jorginho has quickly found his place in Arteta’s lineup in recent weeks. The Italian star scored a fantastic goal from long range to complete Arsenal’s comeback against Aston Villa last weekend.

Having returned to the top of the league table, the Gunners will travel to Leicester City for their next EPL match on Saturday.
