Saint-Etienne files legal complaint against Lyon

Saint-Etienne has filed a legal complaint after several Lyon players joined their fans in singing offensive chants about the French club as they celebrated winning the French Cup.
Saint-Etienne said Tuesday that it had filed the complaint with the prosecutor's office, which will decide whether to pursue the case.
Lyon ended its four-year wait for a trophy by beating semiprofessional side Quevilly 1-0 on Saturday.
The next day, Lyon's players paraded the trophy in the city center and several players _ including club captain Cris, Maxime Gonalons, Alexandre Lacazette and Jimmy Briand _ joined the fans in singing insulting songs about Saint-Etienne.
The French league's ethics committee also says it will investigate.
