Portugal, Alcochete city. 15.05.2018
Around 50 Sporting Lisboa ultras went to the training center and attacked their own players. The Dutch forward Bas Dost, who has scored 34 goals for the club this season, suffered cuts to his head in the attack. Jorge Jesus, the team’s head coach, goalkeeper Rui Patrício and midfielder William Carvalho were also targeted. At least 18 ultras were arrested.
The attack happened because Sporting team lost second place in the table giving the right to play in the Champions League qualifying, more precisely, their defeat in the last round with CS Maritimo. Sporting failed and Benfica used it and now she will play in qualifying.
