Arsenal provide update on Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac after attempted moped gang attack

The Gunners have only just returned from their pre-season tour of the US.

But after returning to London, Ozil and Kolasinac came face-to-face with a knife-wielding gang this afternoon.

While travelling on Golders Green Road, the Arsenal pair were chased in the German’s Mercedes car.

While the gang driving a moped swooped on Oil’s vehicle, footage has emerged of Kolasinac getting out and confronting them head on.

“We have been in contact with both players and they are fine”

Arenal spokesman

Ozil escaped to nearby Turkish restaurant Likya after Bosnian pal Kolasinac had taken on one of the attackers with his bare hands.

Arsenal have since reacted to the terrible incident and assured fans the two are not harmed.

A Gunners spokesman said: “We have been in contact with both players and they are fine.”

The Arsenal playmaker and left-back are both due to feature in Sunday’s Emirates Cup clash with Lyon at the Emirates Stadium.

But it is now unclear whether the two will play a part in the game as Unai Emery continues preparing his team for the new season.

The manager may decide to give the two time to regroup following the attack.

No arrests have been made as yet and a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police has said: “It was reported that suspects on motorbikes had attempted to rob a man who was driving a car.

“The driver, along with his passenger, managed to get away unharmed and travelled to a restaurant in Golders Green, where they were spoken to by officers.

“There have been no arrests. Enquiries continue.”
