Arsenal fans praise ‘brave’ Sead Kolasinac for saving Mesut Ozil from armed robbery attack

CCTV shows Bosnia international Kolasinac exiting Ozil’s car and fighting off the men who appeared to be surrounding the German’s vehicle.

The men held weapons as they clashed with Kolasinac before running away, while Ozil left the gold-trimmed vehicle in the middle of the road and ducked into a restaurant.

Kolasinac and Ozil only returned to England the day before having been part of the Arsenal first-team squad on their tour of America.

Arsenal confirmed the club had spoken to the players following the incident and that they were both “fine”.
