Widespread criticism has been raising over the safety of football stars following the attack on Arsenal stars Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac a couple of days back.

A CCTV video, which was shared widely across social media, shows Ozil and Kolašinac being approached by the masked men with a knife who had pulled alongside their vehicle on a moped in north London. Bosnian Kolašinac is seen leaping out of the car to confront both men, before chasing them away.

British police are hunting for two armed men who attempted to rob Arsenal stars Mesut Ozil and Kolašinac on Thursday. In another video, Sead Kolasinac was seen confronting with the robber holding a knife trying to rob Mesut Ozil.

The English Premier League club said in a statement that Ozil and Kolašinac were both "fine" after the incident.

Kolašinac also tweeted a picture of the pair Friday, along with the caption: "Think we're fine." Ozil tweeted the same picture, thanking fans for their messages and assuring them that he and his wife are both well.
