Sporting Lisbon players and staff attacked by intruders at training ground

Sporting Lisbon's training ground

There have also been rumours he suspended boss Jorge Jesus and his coaching staff on Tuesday (AEST), with senior players reportedly threatening to boycott Monday's (AEST) Taca de Portugal final out of solidarity with their coach.

"Sporting is not this, and Sporting can not be this".

Sporting issued a statement condemning what it calls "acts of vandalism and the attacks on (our) athletes, coaches and professional staff".

Public television RTP reported that around 50 intruders, who had covered their faces to not be identified, interrupted practice at Sporting's training center in Alcochete, about 20 kilometers south of Lisbon.

An image of Bas Dost with a head wound is across Portuguese sporting publications and social media, with the insinuation the Dutch striker suffered the injury during the trouble.

According to O Jogo, a number of fans forcibly gained access to the club's training complex and stormed into the changing rooms.

Portuguese club Sporting 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.

"We can not in any form be associated with acts of vandalism and aggression towards players, coaches and staff of the professional football department, nor with attitudes which constitute the practice of a crime. The perpetrators of these incidents are not fans of football, they are criminals".

The alleged incident took place just two days after a 2-1 defeat to Maritimo, a result that meant Sporting missed out on a UEFA Champions League place to Benfica. He'll be back on the bench for the cup on Sunday, and this kind of behaviour regarding suspensions is all too familar with Bruno.
