Sporting players after cup final loss

Sporting players after cup final loss

Following the exit of Rui Patricio, as well as head coach Jorge Jesus, the foursome of Dost, Carvalho, Martins and Fernandes chose to go public on Monday, and filed notice with the Portuguese Securities Market Commission that they meant to terminate their contracts, invoking "just cause" after being attacked in their workplace.

Everton and Newcastle United target Bas Dost has terminated his contract with Sporting Lisbon.

A month later, a group of supporters entered the Sporting training ground and attacked players and staff, with striker Bas Dost suffering head injuries.

It's the latest in a series of freakish developments at the Estadio Jose Alvalade.

Four more Sporting Lisbon players have rescinded their contracts with the troubled Portuguese club.

He also noted that the drills are quite expensive and the move will save a considerable amount of money for the United States budget.

Goalkeeper Rui Patricio and forward Daniel Podence have already left while manager Jorge Jesus has departed and signed a deal with Saudi club Al-Hilal.

The 23-year-old has scored 13 goals and claimed 13 assists across all competitions this past campaign, with his pace making him a huge threat to defences.

According to Correio da Manha, the player most likely to make this move is Gelson Martins, who reportedly met with officials from Benfica on Friday.

Martins will be part of the Portugal squad at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which offers a distraction while the Portuguese Securities Market Commission examines whether Sporting's disgruntled players have a case for early termination.

Carvalho, Fernandes and Martins are all presently with the Portuguese national team in Russian Federation, along with goalkeeper Patricio, and they have claimed "just cause" in disassociating themselves from the Lisbon club.
