Jorginho and Aaron Ramsdale coached Arsenal under-14s during a training session at Hale End on Thursday

Arsenal midfielder Jorginho and goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale coached the Gunners under-14s during a training session at Hale End on Thursday, according to Arsenal Youth expert and journalist Jeorge Bird.

The duo were linked with exits during the January transfer window, with Nottingham Forest reportedly keen on landing the England international on transfer deadline day.

However, they both remain at the club and were trying their hands on something else yesterday

Jorginho admitted back in October that he is thinking of taking up a coaching career once he hangs up the boots, and he has often been seen coaching his Arsenal teammates from the sidelines while warming up.

The Italian believes he could end up becoming a manager in the future, explaining his passion when asked why he is always coaching on the sidelines.

“I just can’t hold it,” Jorginho said.

“I want to help somehow when I’m on the sidelines or warming up or from the bench, I just try and help the team somehow.

“Maybe, to be honest, I thought it could maybe be a good option for the future. But I always thought I don’t want to because just playing is already so busy and to be a coach, it is even busier.

“I always thought I didn’t know, but now I get to my age, so maybe I’m changing my mind. I’m enjoying it, it’s nice.”

William Saliba once claimed that Jorginho has the best football IQ in the Premier League, and the midfielder may actually have what it takes to succeed as a manager.

He is expected to leave Arsenal at the end of the season, and while he will not be retiring anytime soon, the 32-year-old could start taking his coaching badges in the coming months to realise his future managerial dreams.

Ramsdale could also be on his way out of the North London club in the next transfer window having become the second-choice since the arrival of David Raya last summer, and the Englishman will not be short of suitors.
