Sporting Lisbon board resign

Sporting Lisbon's board have resigned, just two years after taking over at the struggling Portuguese club.

Sporting have had five different head coaches - Domingos Paciencia, Sa Pinto, Oceano Cruz, Franky Vercauteren and Jesualdo Ferreira - since president Godinho Lopes took control in March 2011 and finished 36 points behind champions Porto last season.

"Sporting's board decided to renounce their mandate," the head of the Lisbon club's general assembly Eduardo Barroso said. "The board will stay in function until the elections and the club's managing bodies plead for fans to support the club during this period."

The club's board elections are scheduled for March 23, but little can be done about their current situation as the side sit 26 points behind joint-leaders Porto and Benfica, lagging off the pace in ninth place.

Sporting last won the league in 2002, with Godinho's reign seen as one of the most unstable in their long history.
