Mikel Arteta's brilliant response to being yellow carded during Sky Sports interview after Arsenal win over Man Utd | The Sun

MIKEL ARTETA gave a hilarious response when he was asked about his yellow card during Arsenal's 3-2 win over Man Utd.

The Spaniard, 40, was cautioned during the first half on Sunday after furiously remonstrating when Bukayo Saka was fouled by Luke Shaw.


But after the game, when his team had restored their five-point lead at the top of the Premier League table, he appeared to see the funny side of the incident.

Sky Sports' Geoff Shreeves asked the Arsenal boss: "Can you complain about the yellow card you received?"

To which he bluntly replied: "I don't think so".

Shreeves then pressed for a bit more, asking: "Need to learn a little bit from that?"
