St. Etienne fans throw flares onto pitch 10/22/2021
Friday night's Ligue 1 soccer match between St. Etienne and visiting Angers was delayed as fans threw flares onto the pitch.

It happened prior to the start of the match as the players were warming up.  The home fans were calling for manager Claude Puel to resign as St. Etienne started the season winless after 10 matches, putting them at the bottom of Ligue 1.  The delay lasted nearly an hour.

As for the match, St. Etienne was able to rally from a two goal deficit and pull out a 2-2 draw on a header from defender Mickael Nade in the fourth minute of stoppage time.  However, they remain winless and will likely need some drastic changes to salvage their season.
