Turkish police have offered to tighten the security of Bulgarian football club CSKA after Saturday's attack against ethnic Turkish politician Ahmed Dogan in Bulgaria's capital Sofia.

CSKA Sofia's preseason friendlies in the Turkish resort of Alanya will be guarded by police, it was announced on Sunday.

CSKA is scheduled to play two more games in the Turkish resort.

Police in Bulgaria detained a man after he pointed a gas pistol at Dogan  as he was delivering a speech in the capital Sofia. No shots were fired. The man was identified as Oktay Enimemehmedov, a 25-year-old ethnic Turkish resident of the city of Burgas, with a previous criminal record for assault and theft.

Dogan resigned his post as party chairman four hours after an attempt was made on his life.  His resignation had been rumored as incoming in the past couple of days.
