Sevilla coach stretchered off after being hit by bottle

SevillaramoskoSevilla coach Juande Ramos was knocked unconscious by a bottle thrown from the crowd during a Copa del Rey tie with Real Betis last night. The match was abandoned on 60 minutes after Ramos was carried away on a stretcher.

Ramos was unconscious for 11 minutes after the plastic bottle hit the back of his head as he celebrating Fredi Kanoute's goal. The Seville derby had been given a particularly heated build-up because of a row over whether Sevilla's president Jose Maria del Nido would be allowed into Betis' stadium. Videos of the incident are after the jump.

I'm not quite sure I understand what the problem is for organisations like fifa, uefa and the fa. It's really quite simple. Enforce all grounds to have steward presence in all areas, and if anyone is seen throwing any objects onto the pitch, blacklist them from all football grounds across the country.

violence at games is beginning to take the piss across europe now - remember that danish ref who retired after taking a hit at dynamo kiev vs. roma? even at the carling cup final crap was getting lobbed at fabregas. it's a joke and it's ruining our game... and it's really quite simple to stop! so frustrating...
