St Etienne - Angers - Match postponed after scandal scenes

The match between Saint-Etienne and Angers has been postponed. It happened after Saint-Etienne fans threw dozens of explosions on the field just before the start of the match.

– All this happened before the match and is due to the growing discontent with coach Claude Puel. There were protests at the training ground as fans hung banners, V Sport commentator Paul Thomas Clay tells Dagbladet.

According to French RMC Sport, this is a demonstration against Saint-Etienne coach Claude Puel, which fans are not particularly pleased with.

After ten rounds, the big club finished last on the table with just four points. Their previous match was a 5-1 loss to Strasbourg.

After the agonizing loss, the Ultras supporters had had enough and demanded that coach Claude Boel resign. They gave him 24 hours to quit his job.

– They haven’t won a single match and it should be a bad start to the series historically. Clay says the fans are very upset and football means a lot in the city, and continues:

– No city has a lot of money. It’s a city with workers and football means everything. When things go wrong with their team, they say no. They are still the most winning team in France even though they were humble a few years ago, so they are demanding a lot.

Boyle spoke with the French newspaper L’Equipe before today’s match.

– The coach said: – I have been here for two years and I have an assignment.

Since he did not resign, “ultras” Saint-Etienne took over on Friday night. Before tonight’s match against Angers began, ultras fans threw a number of flares into the stadium.
