The midfielder faces two violent conduct charges

The Football Association have extended the deadline for QPR to respond to the two charges laid on midfielder Joey Barton after a request from his representatives.

The 29-year-old faces charges over his behaviour in his side’s 3-2 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday, where he was sent off and then was involved with incidents with Sergio Aguero and Vincent Kompany.

The FA said in a statement: “The deadline of 6pm on Tuesday 15 May, which Joey Barton had until to respond to the two FA charges against him for alleged violent conduct has been extended to 12 noon on Wednesday May 16 following a request from his representatives.

“The charges against the Queens Park Rangers midfielder are in relation to Sunday’s match against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

“Following the player’s dismissal in the 54th minute of the fixture, there followed two incidents involving Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Vincent Kompany.

“As Barton had already been dismissed, both of these incidents fell outside of the jurisdiction of the referee.”

Barton has left the country for an end-of-season holiday in Portugal.
