Watch: Nacho Monreal’s ridiculous dance while playing NBA game


Rob Holding got the better of Arsenal team-mate Nacho Monreal in the NBA 2K18 celebrity gaming tournament – but the Spaniard definitely won the title of best celebration.

Following victory over Tottenham in Saturday’s North London derby, Monreal and fellow defender Rob Holding faced off in a game of NBA 2K18, with the winner going through to the semi-finals.

When asked to compare their team-mates to NBA stars, Monreal had no hesitation in likening Alex Sanchez to four-time NBA MVP LeBron James.

“I think Alexis Sanchez is the LeBron James of the Premier League,” he said.

“He is one of the best players in the league and I have the opportunity to train with him every single morning. I know how competitive he is, a trait that he shares with King James himself.”

Watch Monreal’s heated battle with Holding below, including some questionable dance moves from the 31-year-old.
