Joey Barton faces two charges on violent conduct

QPR bad boy Joey Barton has been charged with two acts of violent conduct by the Football Association after he lost his head in his side’s defeat by Manchester City.

Barton was sent off for elbowing Carlos Tevez and then proceeded to kick Sergio Aguero before he tried to headbutt Vincent Kompany.

The FA said in a statement: “The FA has today charged Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton in relation to two acts of alleged violent conduct during 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 until 6pm tomorrow to respond to the charges.
