In a viral video, Ozil’s childhood friend and Bosnian international, Kolasinac was filmed fighting the knife-wielding moped thugs with his bare hands as they attempted to steal the Mercedes G-Class SUV they were driving in.
Help later came after Ozil abandoned his car in the middle of the road and fled on foot into the Turkish restaurant Likya. The Waiters and chefs at the restaurant then ran to his defense as they took to the street to chase away the attackers before Police arrived at the scene.
Sharing a smiling photo of the pair on Twitter, the defender wrote: ‘Think we‘re fine.’
