"An excellent opportunity was lost"
Bruno Mascarenhas takes aim at support for illegal fan groups
The Sporting CP board member Bruno Mascarenhas, who also represents Alvalade at the Football League's General Assembly, sat down with Sporting TV this week to speak about the topics which were up for discussion at the latest meeting.
A proposal by FC Porto for addressing the issue of illegal supporters groups was dismissed, even after the initial proposal for a ban of 12 games was reduced to 4.
"It was a good pretext for us to talk about fan groups who are not legalised and for us to try and change things. An excellent opportunity was lost, simply because Benfica doesn't want and isn't capable of organising its fan groups", said Mascarenhas.
