The Scary Nicknames Of Arsenal’s New Boy
Sead Kolasinac at 23 became Arsenal’s first summer signing when he agreed to join the club from Schalke.
For fans of other Premier League clubs wondering what to expect from him, these nicknames seem to give an idea.
Over the course of his career, Sead Kolasinac has been variously referred to as The Destroyer, The Tank and The Bosnian Hulk.
It has been said that Arsenal needs tough midfielders to bring back the glory days and these names obviously do not fit a not-so-tough footballer.
But then, will he be able to earn another scary nickname when he starts to play in England?
Whatever he does right on the pitch, Kolasinac would rather be called Seo by his teammates.
"Personally, I like being referred to as ‘Seo’, which is my nickname,” Kolasinac told Arsenal Player. "I’d be pleased if the lads here called me that.”
Kolasinac has spent his entire senior career at Schalke and, after picking up a suspension for their final game of the season, he decided to sit in the stands with the supporters for the match at FC Ingolstadt.
“It was my last game but I couldn’t play because I’d picked up my fifth yellow card,” he said.
“I thought that as I couldn’t play, I’d travel with the fans, so I could see what they do for us. It was a very interesting experience for me.”
