Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac back in training with Arsenal following gang threats


Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac are believed to have returned training with Arsenal after being caught in the middle of a gang ordeal.

The pair were left out of Unai Emery’s squad which travelled to Newcastle for the first Premier League game of the season following security concerns.

Both players were attacked by knife-wielding carjackers in north London last month, with video footage remarkably showing Kolasinac jumping out of the car and bravely chasing off the thugs.

However, it has got them caught up in the middle of a gang feud and two men were arrested last Thursday night after allegedly getting into an altercation with security staff patrolling the German’s north London residence.

The pair have been under 24-hour surveillance and are understandably troubled by the situation.

Emery did not put a specific timeframe on their return to Arsenal but it is understood that both players trained on Wednesday and Thursday.

Simon Jordan suggested that the duo need to take more responsibility for their well-being.

Jordan was the victim of a similar incident to what Ozil and Kolasinac experienced in March 2018.

The former Crystal Palace owner was robbed of his £100,000 watch while driving in his Maserati in Croydon, London, with his elderly father in the passenger seat.

And Jordan claimed Ozil and Kolasinac need to do more to help guarantee their security considering their high wages.

Speaking to Jim White, Jordan said: “There’s a balance between what the club can do and what people of immense wealth can do for themselves.

“If you’re getting paid £17.5million a year as Ozil is, then you can protect yourself and provide your own security, I’m not entirely sure it’s the responsibility of your employers.

“We don’t live in an ideal world, we live in a world that is flawed and people take advantage.”
