Statement: Sporting SAD and Augusto Inácio
Sporting SAD and Augusto Inácio end formal contract
In light of the new regulations approved by the Portuguese Professional Football League, which prohibit club employees from taking part in television programmes as commentators, Augusto Inácio has considered his continued participation in the media in defence of transparency in football as fundamental.
In showing his passion for the club and in refusing to accept that his freedom of expression should be restricted, Augusto Inácio has decided to terminate his formal contract with Sporting CP.
Sporting CP thanks Augusto Inácio for his professionalism and work developed in the various roles he was asked to take on and we wish him the best of personal and professional success. Sporting will always be his home.
