The Daily Mail website reported The two players were driving along Golders Green district of London on Thursday evening. As Ozil’s black Mercedes came to a stop the car was boxed in by motorbike riders wearing helmets. The robbers attempted to smash the windows with stones and a brick they had kept in a rucksack.
As reported by a source to Daily 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.”
Arsenal said both players were fine and the incident is being treated as a “private matter”.
Kolasinac and Ozil are not the first footballers to be targeted on London’s streets. In 2016, Andy Carroll, a former West Ham player, was threatened at gunpoint on his way home from training.
