Defour is a former Liege player but left the club in 2011 and moved to Porto. However, this summer he returned to Belgian and signed with Liege’s arch-rivals Anderlecht.
And the club’s fans certainly let their former midfielder know what they thought of him with a quite brutal banner unveiled before the match depicting Defour beheaded next to the words: “Red or Dead”.
The game itself was a typically feisty affair and Defour himself was sent off for a second yellow after firing the ball into the crowd in frustration in the second half.
