Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac caught up in north London gang war

Chelsea v Arsenal - UEFA Europa League Final

Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac will miss Arsenal’s opening fixture of the Premier League season against Newcastle after being put under a 24-hour police guard amid a gang war.

On July 25, footage emerged showing Ozil’s car getting jumped by two thugs with knives.

But Kolasinac, who was standing outside of the car at the time, confronted the pair eventually getting rid of them.

It looked as though the pair had got a very lucky escape.

While that may have been the case on the day, it seems the incident is far from over.

That’s because, according to The Sun, they’ve now been caught up in a north London gang war.

An east European mob have got involved after the two men attempted to steal watches from the two players during the raid.

Two men were arrested at Ozil’s £9 million home near Hampstead Heath this week as they refuse to back down.

Meanwhile Kolasinac’s wife, Bella, is so scared that she had fled to Germany saying that she’ll never return.

The villains have told the Arsenal players that: “We’ll rob you of everything.”


However, an east European gang have now stepped in.

A source said: “Word came back from the other gangsters that they would not be intimidated.
“To show they were serious, the thugs issued more threats to the Arsenal players and refused to be cowed.

“It was thought that originally the robbers wanted their watches but now they have been told that they want everything the pair have.


“Kolasinac has lots of friends in North London and the players are very popular.

“The attempted robbery was so brazen that it shocked a lot of people.”

The situation is now so serious that the two players won’t travel to Newcastle this afternoon with Arsenal releasing the following statement:

“Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac will not be part of the squad for our opening match against Newcastle United following further security incidents, which are being investigated by the police.

“The welfare of our players and their families is always a top priority and we have taken this decision following discussion with the players and their representatives.

“We are liaising with police and are providing the players and their families with support. We look forward to welcoming the players back to the squad as soon as possible.”
