European soccer body UEFA launched disciplinary proceedings against St Etienne on Friday after the French side’s supporters lit flares during their Europa League last-32 first leg match at Manchester United. UEFA said in a statement that St Etienne, who face a fine, were charged with setting off fireworks, throwing objects and the improper conduct of supporters at Old Trafford on Thursday. The Ligue 1 side, whose fans lit up the away end with smoky green and red flares, lost the match 3-0 with Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring a hat-trick.
