Anderlecht’s Steven Defour went back to one of his former clubs, Standard Liège, on Sunday, but it was not a happy return for the Belgium forward.

Defour, who played for Standard for five years until 2011 and joined Anderlecht from Porto last year, was greeted with an enormous banner at Liège’s Stade Maurice Dufrasne embazoned with the words “Red or Dead” and accompanied by an image of Defour being beheaded.

An understandably aggrieved Defour responded by kicking the ball into a home fans’ section of the stadium. This led to disturbances in the Anderlecht end, with seats hurled on to the pitch.
