The difference between the two teams – as we have already emphasized – should be evaluated by the competent Portuguese institutions. A meeting was held in the Portuguese Arbitration Court on Tuesday. The case of former manager of Sporting Andre Zeraldes and president of the Portuguese Football Association Joachim Evangelista has held a hearing. Stranes Pondenza and Olympiacos demand compensation of 580,000 euros and another 250,000 euros for non-pecuniary damage.
The Lisbon Group, on the other hand, requires a fee of 60m euros (45m euros plus interest). Olympiacos and Podolens put Jose Ricardo Branco Goncalves as defense counsel for Sporting Nuno De Albuquerque. There is no time frame for making a decision yet. It is estimated, however, that this may happen in November.
