Mesut Ozil targeted by knife gang as teammate Kolasinac fights off attackers with bare hands

Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac fought off knife-wielding moped attackers as they targeted him and teammate Mesut Ozil in an apparent carjacking attempt in London on Thursday.

Incredible footage shows Kolasinac charging to confront helmeted moped attackers - one clearly carrying a large knife - after they targeted a black Mercedes G-Class SUV being driven by teammate Ozil at around 5pm.

The Bosnian, 26, fended off the attackers with his bare hands, while Ozil was reportedly forced to “run for his life” as he was pursued by the muggers after abandoning his car.

Ozil is said to have taken refuge in a nearby Turkish restaurant, while both players emerged from the incident unharmed. They were later interviewed by police, although no arrests have been made so far.

One onlooker told the Dail Mail: "Ozil looked absolutely terrified, as anybody would after being chased by men with knives.

"He looked like he was running for his life. And I suppose he was. I saw him disappear into the restaurant with the motorcycle guys on his tail."

An Arsenal spokesperson confirmed the scary incident, saying: "We have been in contact with both players and they are fine."

The pair have recently returned to London from Arsenal's pre-season tour in the US.
