Kolasinac and Özil:

Sead Kolasinac on Thursday honoured his profession as a defender. The footballer, serving in London's Premier League club Arsenal, bravely stepped in as attackers armed with knives and motorcycle helmets approached the car of his fellow player Mesut Özil.

Footage of a surveillance camera on the scene, a residential area in northwest London, shows how Kolasinac protects the driver's door by blocking the attackers with his bare fists.

On enlarged still images of the video material, it can be seen that the two attackers visible therein hold elongate objects in their hands.

It should probably be the blades of knives. The BBC wrote that an eyewitness had also seen roof tiles with the attackers. Mesut Özil and Sead Kolasinac are friends.

The tabloid Daily Mail reported the incident first. According to the attackers of the holding at the roadside holding Mercedes-Benz G-class of Özil, approximately five o'clock in the afternoon on scooters have approximated.

After Kolasinac had initially fended off the attack and the players were able to drive away, the attackers are said to have pursued them for more than a kilometre.

In a Turkish restaurant, in which Özil is said to be a frequent guest, the players have finally sought protection, according to the report.

The police confirmed reports of an attempted robbery that resulted in two unnamed men escaping before speaking to the police in a restaurant.

Arrests did not exist yet. Arsenal has reportedly confirmed the incident, with both players well.

The "Daily Mail" cites an alleged eyewitness in their report, who is said to have been in the vicinity of the Turkish restaurant: "Özil looked totally horrified, as anyone would look, who was chased by men with knives.

He looked as if he had run for his life. "Only in front of the restaurant, the persecutors had decided to flee because employees of the house had run into the street.

Other reports indicate that Özil's wife Amine was said to be in the car at the time of the attack.
Kolasinac is 26 years old and was born as a child of Bosnian parents in Karlsruhe.

Through the youth teams of Karlsruher SC, TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and VfB Stuttgart, he came in 2011 to FC Schalke 04, where he made the move to the Bundesliga players a little later.

Over time, he developed a good relationship with the club's fans, especially the Ultras, with whom he even went on an outing to Ingolstadt during a suspension - wearing a royal blue fisherman's hat.

In the summer of 2017, the beefy defender then moved to Arsenal to London. He is reputed to be a stalwart and uncompromising defender, benefiting above all from his strong physique.

His nicknames include "The Bosnian Hulk" and "The Tank" - the tank.
