RESIGNATION CONFIRMS ELECTION
Sporting President Godinho Lopes has given up his post following an extensive protest by fans to get him out of the club’s hierarchy.
The decision was made largely thanks to pressure from fans and the club’s investors who have all turned their backs on the team’s leadership.
His resignation will mean Sporting will have a new president in a few weeks’ time as candidates begin to campaign.
Lopes won the election back in 2011 but disposed of three managers and drove to club into debt.
‘Os Leoes’ have had the worst ever season under Lopes command as they plummeted down the table.
The 2011 favourite Bruno de Carvalho is once again predicted to win the election after his shock defeat to Lopes along with TV pundit, Dias de Ferreira.
