Yasmin Tahsiner, the owner of Lykah restaurant in Golders Green where Arsenal players Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac sought refuge after being attacked by carjackers, has hailed the Gunners defender as a hero.
Kolasinac fought off two men wielding knives after he and team-mate Mesut Ozil were attacked in north London on Thursday.
In a video of the incident that has been circulated on social media, Kolasinac can be seen jumping out of a vehicle to confront the masked aggressors, who had pulled alongside the car on mopeds.
Mesut Ozil has offered to save the job of the man inside Arsenal’sGunnersaurus mascot costume by paying his full wages. Jerry Quy has portrayedGunnersaurus for the past 27 years, but was made redundant as part of the job-cutting scheme implemented by Arsenal in the summer. There has been a promisethat the mascot will be back once Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, – althoughit is currently unclear who will be under the costume. Midfielder Ozilreportedly earns some £350,000-a-week as Arsenal’s top-paid player, but iscurrently not in the first-team picture under Mikel Arteta.The German WorldCup winner took to social media on Tuesday to post his offer of support forQuy, who lost his job as a supporter liaison for away matches.
