WATCH: Red Star Belgrade fan Novak Djokovic gives his team a boisterous welcome
He said he would watch Red Star Belgarde once the tennis season is over and Novak Djokovic delivered on that promise on Tuesday.
The world No 1 was in the stands of the Crvena Zvezda Stadium, chanting as loudly as the other thousands of fans around him, when the Serbian outfit took on Paris Saint-Germain in their final Group C encounter in this year’s Uefa Champions League.

Unfortunately for 14-time Grand Slam winner Djokovic, Red Star exited this year’s Champions League with a 4-1 defeat to French champions PSG.
They finished bottom of the standings with only four points and their only victory was a 2-0 win over Liverpool on match day four at the start of November.
