EPL: Declan Rice selects an Arsenal player who surprises him, proving that he is an exceptional trainer.
Arsenal midfielder, Declan Rice, has picked the Gunners player who surprises him most in training.
Rice joined Arsenal from West Ham United over the summer transfer window.
However, the England international has now identified teammate Jorginho as the Arsenal player that surprises him most, describing him as an ‘outstanding trainer’.
“The one who has surprised me so much—not surprised me because I knew he was such a good player anyway, but playing with him every day in training, seeing how he is because he’s not the biggest—is Jorginho,” Rice told Channel 4.
“His brain, the way it works as a holding midfielder—I’ve just been trying to pick up little things off him.
“He is always in position, always knows when to pass, always creates time for himself. He’s an outstanding trainer, and I have been trying to take little bits from his game as well.
“I am trying to learn from everyone, to be honest. I am only 24, I have got all the abilities myself, but there are still things to add to get to the top, and that is what I want to do.”
Jorginho joined Arsenal in a £12million deal from Premier League London rival Chelsea in the January transfer window.
