Today, Portuguese daily Público  report that head coach Jorge Jesús claims to have proof that Sporting president Bruno Carvalho instigated the ultras attack with the coach looking to sever ties with the Lisbon outfit immediately.

According to the report, Carvalho met with ringleaders from the Juve Leo ultras on April 6th after the club's Europa League game against Atletico Madrid a claim denied by Carvalho in an official club communique. Jorge Jesús has also confirmed that he will be undertaking legal matters to deal with the situation.
