Not sure if been mentioned elsewhere, couldn't find anything, but what the **** is going on there??

Team attacked in the dressing room after missing out on champions league football by around 50 masked "fans". The Coach has quit and 6 of there best players looking to terminate their contracts, 2 confirmed already.



Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon condemned "acts of vandalism and aggression" on Tuesday after forward Bas Dost was injured when a group of hooded supporters, armed with sticks and belts, attacked players and staff at the club's training complex.

Portuguese media published pictures of Dutch international Dost with cuts on his head and reports said that assistant coaches Mario Monteiro and Raul Jose suffered unspecified injuries.

The attackers, numbering around 50, also brandished weapons at coach Jorge Jesus and other players, who were caught by surprise in their changing room after training, reports said.



Four more Sporting Lisbon players have rescinded their contracts with the troubled Portuguese club.

Portugal internationals William Carvalho, Gelson Martins, Bruno Fernandes and Dutch striker Das Bost all filed notice with the Portuguese Securities Market Commission on Monday that they were breaking their contracts with Sporting. They all claimed "just cause" in emails sent to the commission.

Goalkeeper Rui Patricio and forward Daniel Podence already quit the team two weeks ago, while coach Jorge Jesus left Sporting and signed with Saudi club Al-Hilal last week.

The mass exit comes at the end of a tumultuous season for Sporting with clashes between players and both of the club's most radical fans and its president.
