Porto coach, Sergio Conceicao, has filed a legal complaint against a mayor in Spain over a reported fight at a children’s competition, a report says.

Porto Coach Accused Of Hitting Police Officers, Referee And Mayor

The Portuguese manager has been accused by the mayor of Spanish town Cartaya of hitting a referee, police officers and the mayor himself, ESPN reports.


The 49-year-old has filed a complaint of his own against the mayor, Manuel Barroso, saying he pushed one of Conceicao’s sons.

Porto have confirmed that the former winger will take legal action for defamation since hearing the mayor’s retelling of his version of events on Spanish radio.

The club maintains that Conceicao went on to ask the referee about an incident and Barroso subsequently pushed his son, resulting in the coach stepping in to break up that altercation.

A statement from Conceicao’s lawyer said: “A criminal complaint was filed yesterday, immediately after the events, against mayor Manuel Barroso for attempted assault on Sergio Conceicao’s son.


“We deny the accusations made by the same mayor, which have no basis in truth.

“In view of the news published in the meantime, we will also move forward with a complaint for defamatory allegations against mayor Manuel Barroso”.
