About 50 fans of the Portuguese club “Sporting” attacked the players in the locker room at the stadium. They shouted insults at the coach, as well as injured at least three players using metal objects and torches.

The most serious injury was striker Bas Dost, who was struck several times on the head. This season is the best player of “Sporting” with 13 goals in 12 games. Also, the injuries were inflicted on Josip Misic and Rodrigo Battaglia, who were hospitalized.


Various sporting “fans” broke into Alcochete, Sporting’s training complex, and are alleged to have assaulted their star man, Bas Dost. No matter how disgruntled fans are, they should NEVER blame/assault the players. Pathetic behaviour.

“Sporting” began to look for the attackers, who previously put on hoods and during the attack hid their faces from the cameras. According to the management of the club, they will turn to the police to punish the perpetrators of the incident.

May 13, “Sporting” was outside the Champions League – the most prestigious football competition among clubs – due to the fact that its rival, “Benfica” won the final match. Instead, the team will perform in the European League.
