A second man has admitted trying to rob Arsenal footballers Mesut Özil and Sead Kolasinac in a moped ambush.
Jordan Northover, 26, pleaded guilty at Harrow Crown Court to attempting to steal watches from the pair in Hampstead, north-west London.
His co-accused Ashley Smith, 30, of Archway in North London, admitted his role in the crime in October.
CCTV footage showed Bosnian defender Kolasinac chasing off the two masked attackers on 25 July
In the video, that circulated on social media, 26-year-old Kolasinac is seen fighting off two men who are wielding knives.
He can be seen jumping out of a vehicle to confront the masked men who had pulled alongside the car on mopeds.
In the footage, both carjackers were seen to be armed and were filmed brandishing knives at full-back Kolasinac.
World Cup winner Özil can also be seen in his black Mercedes G class jeep before he reportedly took refuge in a Turkish restaurant.
Kolasinac and Germany midfielder Özil were left out of the Arsenal side ahead of the opening weekend of the Premier League campaign after the incident.
Judge Rosa Dean said Smith would be sentenced at Harrow Crown Court on Friday.
Northover will be sentenced at a later date.
Özil told the Athletic sports site that he was scared for his wife Amine as the attackers pursued his car.
“Sead’s reaction was really, really brave because he attacked one of the attackers,” he said.
“I tried to move the car, block them, escape, but each time they would be there. My wife was extremely scared.”
Arsenal manager Unai Emery expects midfielder Mesut Ozil to stay at the club – but says Nacho Monreal could leave.
Ozil, 30, who has not featured yet this season due to safety concerns and illness, has been heavily linked with a move away from Emirates Stadium.
Real Sociedad are interested in signing defender Monreal, 33, and Emery believes a transfer is a “possibility”.
But he said: “We are not speaking about the possibility for Mesut to leave.”
The transfer window for Premier League arrivals closed on 8 August but it is open across Europe until 2 September.
“We finish here our transfer window and in Europe it’s going to finish on Monday,” added Emery.
“We cannot sign another player, but we have the possibility [for players] to leave in the next four days. Yes, [Monreal] is one possibility.”
The Gunners take on Tottenham in the North London derby on Sunday and German Ozil could be in contention for the first time.
“This week he is physically better and he is training and doing normal work with us,” said Emery. “He is going to be closer to us and he will be available on Sunday,”
