Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac ‘return to Arsenal training’ for first time after gang threats


ARSENAL have reportedly welcomed Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac back to training after their gang-threat ordeal.

The Gunners duo were pulled out of the trip to Newcastle last weekend over ongoing “security threats” after they were attacked by knife-wielding thugs last month.

A rival gang of East Europeans has intervened in a bid to ward off further attacks.

But the local yobs will not be intimidated and have threatened to “rob everything” the pair have — forcing Bosnian-born Kolasinac’s terrified wife to flee to Germany.

In a boost for Unai Emery, the Daily Mail reports that Ozil – who was pictured leaving his home for the first time in five days yesterday – and Kolasinac reported to training.

Ozil, 30, was accompanied by private security as he was bundled into the back of his luxury car.

But as of yet, there is no word from the club on when the pair will be back in action.

Two men were arrested outside Ozil’s home last Thursday, following an alleged altercation with security staff.

Ferhat Ercan and Salaman Ekinci, both 27, were charged on Friday and are due to appear at Highbury Corner magistrates’ court next month.

Former Reading and Chelsea ace Steve Sidwell has revealed stars are now spending £25,000 on specially trained dogs as a result of attacks.

Arsenal – who face Burnley at the weekend – won without Ozil and Kolasinac to get their season off to a strong start.

Following the victory, Unai Emery confirmed: “The club is managing the situation.

“We want to be with them as soon as possible and to have them ready to play.”
