Rice ‘surprised’ by Arsenal team-mate in training

Declan Rice has admitted he has been “surprised” by Jorginho’s ability in Arsenal training.

Since completing his £105million move to the Gunners this summer, Rice has been blown away by the former Chelsea man.

“His brain, the way it works as a holding midfielder, I’ve just been trying to pick up little things off him.
