Arsenal midfielder, Jorginho has said that he often finds it difficult coming shoulder to shoulder with his teammate Gabriel Magalhaes during training.
Jorginho said he is scared to face the Brazilian in training.
The Italian midfielder left Chelsea and transferred to Emirates in January in a £12 million deal.
He has since played 16 times across competitions for the Gunners but could not help them win the Premier League title last season.
In an interview on Premier League’s YouTube account, the Italy international was asked which player he would choose from Granit Xhaka, William Saliba and Gabriel to make a last-ditch tackle for his team.
Jorginho said, “I would go for Gabi (Gabriel Magalhaes). He’s a tough guy.
“In those tackles, he goes strong. He goes all in. He would make it, for sure”
When asked if he has gone shoulder-to-shoulder with Gabriel in training, the Italian midfielder said, “Not a chance! When I see him, I’m like ‘You can go man’.”
24-year-old Brazil international Gabriel, moved to the Emirates Stadium from LOSC Lille Metropole in 2020 for a fee of €26 million.
