Shots have been fired at a bus carrying Turkey's Fenerbahce soccer team.

At least one person has been injured, according to the club.

Reports on Fenerbahce TV said the driver was shot in the face after the bus came under repeated attack from someone firing a shotgun.

The club's vice president Mahmut Uslu, who was on the bus at the time, accused the attackers of trying to "crash the bus and kill the players".

The vehicle was hit as it drove to the airport following the team's 5-1 away win at the Black Sea side Caykur Rizespor in Turkey's Super Lig.

Trabzon governor Abdil Celil Oz confirmed the gun attack on the bus and said the driver's life was not in danger.

"At first we thought stones had been thrown at the bus but forensic investigators at the scene have concluded it was an armed attack," he said.

Several pictures of the bus were also posted on the team's official club website, revealing a shattered side window and damage to the front windscreen. The pictures also showed blood on the driver's seat and the steering wheel.

The governor said he had received a phone call from President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a supporter of the Istanbul club, asking him about the investigation into the attack.

The Turkish Football Federation released a statement condemning the attack.
