Enraged fans of troubled Bulgarian top football team CSKA Sofia attacked and vandalized the office of the Bulgarian Football Union in central Sofia little after Saturday noon.

The door and windows of the office were broken, but no one has been injured, officially confirmed the police.

Some 1,000 CSKA fans assembled at the Ariana lake near the busy Orlov Most (Eagles Bridge) intersection at noon, and then proceeded to the Football Union office on Ivan Asen II Str. nearby.

Some were throwing pavements stones and smoke bombs.

After thrashing the Bulgarian Football Union office, the fans proceeded to the CSKA stadium in the nearby Borisova Gradina park.

CSKA fans are protesting the takeover of the team by former football legend Hristo Stoichkov, and its possible merger with the team of Litex Lovech.

The change of ownership comes after years of financial trouble and unconvincing performance by CSKA, which however finished third in Bulgaria's latest national football championship.
