Levski Sofia players and coaches
were rescued after angry fans threatened them following their
second consecutive Bulgarian league defeat on Thursday, police
said in a statement.
Levski, considered as Bulgarian title favorites, lost 1-0 at
champions Litex Lovech to lie fourth in the standings.
Supporters were so disgusted by their team's performance
that they set up a road blockade and tried to storm the club bus
on the trip back to Sofia.
Frustrated fans, who also threw stones, bottles and other
objects onto the pitch during the tense game, were escorted away
Levski appointed Georgi Ivanov as coach on Tuesday, a day
after Nikolay Kostov resigned after the surprising 1-0 home
defeat by Minyor Pernik - Kostov's first league loss since he
took over last November.
