THE SUN 🔵 Arsenal fans love Jorginho’s gesture on bench during West Ham humiliation

With the three points wrapped up early, Mikel Arteta subbed on youngster Ethan Nwaneri for the final 13 minutes.

It was the midfielder’s second first-team appearance after he became the youngest ever player to feature in the Premier League last season aged 15 years and 181 days.

After the win against West Ham, Arteta said: « The players on the bench were whispering, ‘Bring Ethan in’, which is a great thing to hear.

« The other thing is for your team-mates to give you the ball all the time. If they do that, it’s because they really trust you. »

And it appears Jorginho was the player in the manager’s ear calling for him to be subbed on.

The Italian has been a fan of Nwaneri for some time after gaining his UEFA B coaching license while working with Arsenal’s Under-14s a few years ago.

And Aaron Ramsdale appeared to confirm the ex-Chelsea star was the one pushing for 16-year-old to be given another opportunity as he wrote on social media: « Get Ethan on @jorginhofrello. »

Fans believe Jorginho is future manager, with one saying: « We have to keep him as a coach when he’s done playing. »
