Betis condemn egg-throwing fans

MADRID - Real Betis on Tuesday criticised fans who threw eggs and shouted abuse at their own players as they left the club's training ground in their cars on Monday. "There are many ways to show your unhappiness with the sporting situation we are experiencing," Betis said on their website. "But violence is prohibited and unacceptable, and we should concentrate on standing together." Betis have slipped to 16th in the Primera Liga after four consecutive defeats, and are three points above the relegation places with three matches left to play.
