Bas Dost, William Carvalho, others join Sporting CP mass exodus

Bas Dost StoriesSporting are about to lose their four best players – for absolutely nothing

Sporting Lisbon President Bruno de Carvalho has offered to stand down if key players withdraw their threats to leave the club in protest at his behaviour which some say amounted to psychological violence.

Following the exit of Rui Patricio, as well as head coach Jorge Jesus, the foursome of Dost, Carvalho, Martins and Fernandes made a decision 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.

Head coach Jorge Jesus has already left for Saudi club Al-Hilal, while goalkeeper Rui Patricio and winger Daniel Podence had already informed the Primeira Liga side they would be leaving.

The mass exit comes at the end of a tumultuous season for Sporting with clashes between players and both of the club's most radical fans and its president.

Portugal internationals William Carvalho, Gelson Martins, Bruno Fernandes and Netherlands striker Bas Dost all filed notice with the Portuguese Securities Market Commission on Monday that they were breaking their contracts with Sporting. "Secondly, if we run and get elected again, they maintain their contracts".

However, Tite had midfielder Fred left off the team after he hurt his right ankle in training on Thursday. Under Tite , Brazil have regained the swagger that has been missing from recent World Cup squads.

The players have claimed "just cause" following an attack on the Sporting squad by a 50-man gang in May at the club's training ground - one incident in a string of sorry moments for the Portuguese giants last season.

He has also refused to accept the legitimacy of a vote later this month to depose him.

He has submitted a letter of resignation.

It is unclear whether the president's new offer will persuade the players to change their minds - none has been available for comment.
