Ozil and Kolasinac back in training after ‘security incidents’

Arsenal pair Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac returned to training on Wednesday.

The duo were unavailable for last weekend’s 1-0 win at Newcastle as the police investigate “further security incidents”.

Both players were targeted by car-jackers in north London last month, with security camera footage showing Kolasinac confronting the offenders after they approached Ozil’s car. The two players emerged unhurt during the incident in Golders Green.

Neither had trained on the Friday before Arsenal released a statement later in the day announcing they would be unavailable for selection at St James’ Park.

But it is believed they were back training as normal on Wednesday, with their availability for Saturday’s visit of Burnley likely to be addressed by head coach Unai Emery at his Thursday pre-match press conference.
