Just another love story about fans and the projectiles they hurl. Sevilla coach Juande Ramos stepped out onto the field to celebrate his team's go-ahead goal early in the second half of a match against rival Betis, and was promptly knocked unconscious by a two-liter bottle filled with ice and liquid. Man, soccer fans are the classiest. NBX was nice enough to find the video:
Ramos was unconscious for about ten minutes, and the game was suspended and may not be completed. But the coach was level-headed about the incident:
"These are things which happen when matches get heated," he told reporters as he left the hospital on Thursday. "Betis fans aren't represented by the lunatic who threw the bottle."
I gotta disagree with ya there Johnny. Fans pelted your ambulance with rocks, so… yeah. That "lunatic" was a pretty fucking good representative.
