Arsenal midfielder Jorginho has named Gunner teammate Gabriel Magalhaes as the player he’s scared to face in training.
The Italian midfielder joined the Emirates in January from Arsenal in a £12 million deal.
He has since made 16 appearances across competitions for his new club but failed to help them win the Premier League title last season.
Jorginho was recently asked a series of questions about his Arsenal teammates for a video on the Premier League’s YouTube account.
He was asked which player he would choose from Granit Xhaka, William Saliba and Gabriel to make a last-ditch tackle for his team.
Xhaka has, of course, joined Bayer Leverkusen this summer.
Responding to the aforementioned question, the former Napoli midfielder said, SportBible, “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”
Asked if he has gone shoulder-to-shoulder with the Brazilian centre-back in training, the 31-year-old said:”Not a chance! When I see him, I’m like ‘You can go man’.”
Gabriel, 25, joined the Gunners from LOSC Lille Metropole three years ago for a fee of €26 million.
He has since gone from strength to strength to become a regular starter in Mikel Arteta’s side.
The Brazilian played all 38 of his team’s league games last season, helping keep 14 clean sheets.
