Ex-Arsenal star Sead Kolasinac misses absolute sitter for Marseille against Tottenham before his side lose it at end

FORMER Arsenal star Sead Kolasinac came inches away from knocking former rivals Tottenham out of the Champions League.

The ex-Emirates left-back missed an absolute sitter that would likely have seen Antonio Conte and Co dumped into the Europa League.

In the closing stages of the game, with Marseille’s clash against Spurs level at 1-1, Kolasinac somehow bungled a header from point-blank range.

With the ball teased into the box from the right hand side, Kolasinac found himself in acres of space at the back post.

All he had to do was hit the target and the Bosnian international would have sent Marseille through to the knockouts and Spurs packing.

But Kolasinac couldn’t do old club Arsenal a favour – somehow managing to head wide when it was easier to score than miss.

Marseille manager Igor Tudor was left in utter disbelief on the touchline after Kolasinac fluffed his lines from three yards out.

And fans on social media were equally as stunned.

One Arsenal fan joked: “Kolasinac will pay for his sins…”

Another wrote: “Kolasinac how is that possible?”


And a third said: “Kolasinac is still torturing me while not being at Arsenal, how are you not scoring? The game was in your hands…”

Had Kolasinac found the back of the net, Spurs would have been knocked out of the Champions League at the group stages.

But instead Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg slammed home a 95th minute winner just moments after Kolasinac’s clanger to send Spurs through top of the group and confirm Marseille’s elimination.

Talisman Harry Kane led the party in the away team dressing room after full-time with some hilarious dance moves.

The England skipper had fans in stiches with his shuffling in the changing room that was captured by Emerson Royal.
