Coach quits in wake of abandonment sparked by last season's runners-up losing to bottom of the table Zulte Waregem.

Standard Liege manager Guy Luzon has resigned following Sunday’s abandoned match against bottom placed Zulte Waregem.

Standard Liege’s Belgian Pro League match was abandoned in the 90th minute with the home side trailing 2-1 to bottom-of-the-table Zulte Waregem

The referee called a halt to proceedings when furious fans broke fences and threw seats onto the pitch.

Luzon, who took charge in 2013, has presided over a dismal start to the season in which last year’s runners up have picked up just 12 points from 11 matches, culminating in Sunday’s 1-2 defeat to bottom side Zulte Waregem.

“Guy Luzon told the group that he (has) quit his job as manager,” Standard Liege said on Twitter.

Assistant coach Ivan Vukomanovic will take over until a permanent successor is found.
