Mikel Arteta

The 1-0 defeat suffered by Arsenal against Man City seems to have upset manager Mikel Arteta and that made him give some serious reaction, especially when he had to say “How the Hell?”

The North London outfit gave that reaction after Kyle Walker committed an infringement against Bukayo Saka which he claims should have been a penalty but the VAR failed to give that decision.

There are suggestions that it would have been a different result entirely if the North London outfit were given the penalty because it would cancel the first-half goal by Raheem Sterling.

This is the first time Mikel Arteta will be having that level of reaction after a defeat in a game and that could tell how much he would do if more situations arise next time.

This calls for the question of whether he is really a gentleman as he seems or not.

Analyst have noted that the Spanish boss is a very passionate manager about the game and not getting results could bring out some of his hidden traits and anger could be one of them.

Mikel Arteta still has a lot of game to handle as a manager and there are no doubts that such situations would arise. How long will he be able to keep his cool?
