TWO men accused of threatening Mesut Ozil’s security guard outside the Arsenal star’s house have appeared in court today.
Salaman Ekinci and Ferhat Ercun, both 27, stand accused of abusing guard Kemil Sezer in Highgate, North London, last month.
The pair both deny charges of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner.
Salaman Ekinci today arrived in court with his foot in a moon boot to face the charges, covering his face with a black cap.
Ferhat Ercan was pictured in a black shirt and blue suit for the court appearance.
Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court heard today the pair had harassed the security guard, intending to cause him alarm or distress on August 8.
Prosecutor Valerie Benjam told the court: “It’s alleged the two defendants approached and were verbally abusive, making threats toward them.”
Ekinci, of Tottenham and Ercun, of Highgate, North London, were bailed to appear before the same court on November 6 for trial.
