Well, officially no one was suspended over the weekend, but there were strong rumors that the managerial staff had been suspended prior to the meeting with the players. This situations was boiling for weeks ever since there was a clear conflict the players and the president after the match with Atletico. Once they started winning matches, things seemed to calm down, but as soon as they drew Benfica, there was clear tension between the manager (who put himself on the players' side of the conflict) and the president. When they lost with Maritimo in the last match and with that ended third, things started to escalate. There had already been some insults thrown at the players that night at Maritimo's stadium, the airports and even at Sporting's own stadium. The following day, the president public ally asks the players and staff to go to the stadium for the meetings where as far as was known, the staff was almost suspended, with intentions to terminate them, but because the players threatened to go on strike for the cup final, everything "stayed the same".
Now this is where things get kinda crazy. Yesterday, the president asked for a new meeting in the club's training grounds around lunch time, but he missed the meeting. Even though there had already been issues over the weekend, security was left on a "normal" level, and 50 dudes get into the training grounds and attack the players and the staff. The president and the "sports director", who are pretty hands on and are many times even on the bench during matches weren't there either. After the whole shitstorm he records a message about it and says pretty much that "These things happen".
In the meantime, the sports director has been taken by police today due to a possible corruption scandal both in football and handball.
