Seek proof, says Carvalho

Sporting President Bruno de Carvalho has urged David Sullivan to provide evidence of West Ham's bid for William Carvalho.

The 45-year-old, speaking on Sporting TV challenged Hammers fans to force Sullivan to provide documentary proof of a purported bid - which Sporting say failed to materialise, despite the West Ham co-owner's insistence.

And the outspoken Carvalho - who referred to Sullivan and partner David Gold as "the dildo brothers" - was in no mood to tone down the belligerent rhetoric started by fellow director Nuno Saraiva, who called Sullivan a "liar" following West Ham's claims that they were offered the player on transfer deadline day.

"Where is it? The proof?" Carvalho blasted. "These messengers, these offended virgins, the president of West Ham - we must tell the truth!"

President Carvalho also claimed that the player's father, who doubles as his agent insisted that he received no proposal from West Ham in transfer deadline day.

"William's father came in on the last day of the market all excited and said they would get two proposals," he added. "We called the [West Ham] lawyers and asked if there would be a proposal and they said 'it's best to go home because in my opinion, no proposal will come'."

Sullivan had previously claimed, in a statement posted on whufc.com, that "Sporting Lisbon made contact [on deadline day] to accept the original offer, but unfortunately it was just too late in the day."
