Police charge Betis fan said to have hit Sevilla coach with bottle

A Real Betis fan who allegedly threw a bottle at Sevilla's coach, leaving him unconscious, has been charged by police.

Betis said Tuesday its lawyers were now considering whether to take legal action against the man, who was identified by his initials as A. C. R.

Betis added that if the supporter was a member, his card would be withdrawn to prevent him from entering the stadium again.

Sevilla coach Juande Ramos was hit during the Copa del Rey quarterfinal second leg between the fierce rivals from the Andalusian city on Feb. 28.

The game was abandoned with Sevilla leading 1-0 and will be resumed in Getafe on March 20.

Betis was punished with the closure of its Manuel Ruiz de Lopera stadium for its next three home games against Villarreal, Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid.

An appeal by Betis has been rejected both by the federation and the Spanish Committee for Sports Discipline, the country's senior sporting appeals body, although the club is now considering taking legal action, reports AP.

Betis is 14th in the 20-team Spanish league, with 31 points from 26 games.
