Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac won’t feature in Arsenals encounter against Newcastle, in a premier league game to be held on Sunday because of security concerns.
Both the players survived a carjacking attempt in London on Thursday, after which Ozil shared the pictures of the incident adding a note “Think we are fine”. Since then, both the players are having some time out, because of the mental strain, and also because of the discomfort.
Ozil and Kolasinac were not featured in Arsenal’s encounter against Lyon which was held last Sunday, though they did play against Barcelona. But have decided to stay away from the action till further precautionary measures.
The club says that they are in communion with the local police and are providing players and their families with the ongoing support, which is so very essential in the aftermaths of such a terrible and annoying incident.
Both the players were uninjured in the attack, but are in a state of unrest, and this is very much understandable.
