Sporting Libson players attacked during training, Bas Dost hurt

Sporting Lisbon's training ground

Sporting Lisbon's Netherlands worldwide Bas Dost was injured after around 50 hooded supporters, armed with sticks and belts, attacked players and staff at the club's training complex, Portuguese media reported on Tuesday.

A group of angry fans forced their way into Sporting Lisbon's training center on Tuesday and assaulted its players and staff, the club said.

Sporting issued a statement of their own, decrying what it termed "acts of vandalism and the attacks on (our) athletes, coaches and professional staff".

Dutch forward Bas Dost, who has scored 34 goals for the club this season, reportedly suffered cuts to his head in the attack.

Sporting Lisbon have made a decision to "honour their status as professionals" and play the Portuguese Cup final on Sunday, despite being viscously attacked by their own fans this week.

The attackers also brandished weapons at coach Jorge Jesus and other players, who were caught by surprise in their changing room after training. The perpetrators of these incidents are not fans of football.

Sporting Lisbon missed out on Champions League football under agonising circumstances on the last day of the Primeira Liga season.

The team are meeting their player's union on Wednesday to discuss their reaction which according to domestic media could see them refuse to play in Sunday's Cup final against Desportivo das Aves.
