Nine cars belonging to Red Star players had their windows smashed and shampoo bottles hurled inside, in an apparent protest by fans against the team's poor results.

The incidents in the Red Star stadium parking lot on Tuesday came a day after the players issued an open letter claiming Serbia's most popular club is facing an ''alarming'' financial situation amid bickering within its leadership.

The players said they have to train on poorly maintained grass pitches in the largest stadium in the Balkans, and they even lack shampoo in the dressing room.

Red Star, the European champion in 1991, owes millions of dollars to its players, coaches and creditors and for years has endured poor results in the low-quality domestic league. The fans blame the players.
