Network news: Standard in meltdown, Luzon out.

Standard de Liege, Belgium

Jupiler Pro (1st) League

Standard – Zulte - Waregem : 1-2. Abandoned on 90 mins, Att. n/a

Big trouble at t’ Mill. Standard ultras pre –planned a silent protest for the first 15 minutes, however things turned even uglier as Standard fell behind to the bottom side. After pitch incursions and chairs thrown onto the field, the match was suspended for 10 mins and then finally abandoned. It seems likely that Waregem will be awarded a 5-0 victory. Roland Duchatelet was in attendance but left when things turned nasty. Subsequently today, Monday, there are reports that Guy Luzon has stepped down as coach.
