Why Jorginho was unhappy with Martin Odegaard in Arsenal training

Jorginho was not happy with his captain on Monday.

After a 1-1 draw with Nurnberg last week, Arsenal have headed off to the USA for a pre-season tour.

Their first game of the tour takes place on Thursday against an MLS All-Star XI, which will be managed by Wayne Rooney.

Ahead of that game, Mikel Arteta has been putting his side through their paces. During Monday’s training, though, Jorginho was not happy.

In a training drill in Washington DC on Monday, Arsenal players had to form a team of two, with one player jumping on the back of the other right after the whistle.

The last one to do it usually ends up doing a forfeit, and Martin Odegaard clearly didn’t want that to happen. The Arsenal captain couldn’t find a teammate, so he hopped on Arteta’s back instead.

The Spaniard obliged with a big smile on his face, but Jorginho wasn’t having that at all.
