The big story of the weekend in Belgium happened at Standard Liege.
The local powerhouse have got off to a terrible start this season, and a 2-1 home defeat to bottom club Zulte-Waregem on Sunday sent the fans over the edge.
Standard’s fans began protesting as early as the 10th minute, while the atmosphere soured further when Theo Bongonda fired the visitors in front in the 21st minute.
Late in the second half a handful of supporters decided enough was enough, as they moved towards to Liege dugout housing manager Guy Luzon, while chairs and missiles where thrown onto the pitch in disruptive scenes.
Zulte-Waregem doubled their lead in the 88th minute courtesy of a bullet strike from Aussie James Troisi, while Paul-Jose M’Poku netted a consolation for Standard in injury time.
Whilst the scenes at the game were deplorable, ultimately they have proved to be successful.
On Monday morning Standard liege fired manager Guy Luzon. They are currently 12th in the 16-team league, just three points off the bottom.
