Ex-Arsenal star Mesut Ozil sends Harry Maguire message after terrifying bomb threat to Man Utd captain

FORMER Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has sent Manchester United’s Harry Maguire a message of support following the star’s terrifying bomb scare.

The Red Devils’ skipper, 29, feared for the lives of his fiancée Fern Hawkins, 27, and their two young girls after a chilling email said an explosive device was planted at his £4m mansion.

The sick threat was issued on Wednesday — hours after United were beaten 4-0 by arch-rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday night.

Specialist police officers quickly arrived at Maguire’s property and made a thorough search, with no device found.

However the threat was deemed so serious police returned yesterday with a sniffer dog to make a second sweep of the grounds and surrounding area.

Again nothing was found but cops have launched an investigation into the threat, believed to have been made by a United fan.

Following the shock news, ex-Arsenal winger Ozil admits he is totally bemused by the situation as he gave the England international his backing on social media.

The German World Cup winner’s tweet read: “Just read the news about Harry Maguire … this is just insane.

“Football can never ever be that serious to be threatening a player and his family. I'm shocked.

“Sometimes football brings out the worst in people. Hopefully all people involved get punished.”

Meanwhile, Sun Sport exclusively revealed that Maguire is determined that the incident will not force him to leave the club.

A source close to the defender told The Sun last night: “Harry will not be forced out of Manchester United by this kind of threat.

“His number one priority will always be the safety of his family but he’s also got the strength of character to deal with this. It looks like the work of some cowardly fan.

“If that proves to be the case, they are an utter disgrace to the name of this proud football club.”
