Mikel Arteta has responded to Gary Neville claiming he always looks “a million dollars”. The Manchester United hero was commentating alongside Martin Tyler at Old Trafford last weekend when Arsenal won 1-0.

Prior to kick-off, the cameras focused on the Spaniard who stood emotionless on the touchline. Wearing a black coat and fleece, and with his hair in typically immaculate condition, Neville couldn’t help but comment on the Arsenal manager’s looks.

“He always looks a million dollars doesn’t he, Mikel Arteta, how do you look like that?!” Neville said.

Asked about the comments ahead of Arsenal’s fixture against Aston Villa, Arteta responded well.

“Well, I take Gary very seriously so if he says it in a good way then thanks to him!” he said. “I try to be myself on the touchline. Sometimes though when I look at myself and I am constantly looking and shouting, I don’t really like it too much. But it’s the emotion and passion with which I live the game.”
