Hulk and Helton fined after being charged with assaulting Benfica security guards

Brazilian's Hulk and Helton, former team mates at Porto, were sentenced on Monday and will be forced to pay fines of 45,000 and 60,000 euros respectively.

They were charged with assulting two security people in 2009 in the tunnel of Benfica's Stadium of Light.

Hulk and Helton were two of five Porto players charged by the Court of Criminal Instruction Lisbon.

The other players involved were Sapunaru, Cristian Rodríguez and Fucile. It isn't yet known if the players will appeal the court's decision.

The incident took place on December 20th when Porto were defeated 1-0 by Benfica and tempers boiled over after defeat in the title clash.

The Disciplinary Committee of the Portuguese League decided in early 2010 to suspend Hulk for four months and defender Sapunaru for six months.

However that punishment was reduced and today's result today will be a blow to the various players involved as well as leaving a hefty hole in their wallets.

It hasn't been the best week for the Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk as he was criticised by former World Cup winner Roberto Rivellino last week.
