Ozil, Kolasinac to miss first game over security concerns
The pair were involved in an attempted robbery last month in Golders Green, North London.
Arsenal in their statement on Friday said “Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac will not be part of the squad for our opening match against Newcastle United following further security incidents which are being investigated by the police. The welfare of our players and their families is always a top priority, and we have taken their decision following discussion with the players and their representatives. We look forward to welcoming the players back to the squad as soon as possible.
