Joey Barton, the manager of Fleetwood has recently been penalized by the Association of Football for criticizing Brett Huxtable, a referee, following their loss at the venue of Bristol Rovers in the last month of December.
He attracted the charges because of his comment on the performance of Brett Huxtable. While interacting with the media he said that Brett’s performance was “as worse as I have ever seen in my entire life” and hope I will never see him refereeing once again in any of the League One matches.
Actually, Brett booked 6 players of Fleetwood and thereafter also sent off their striker named Ched Evans and Barton, as a result, the Army of Cod lost by a score of 2-1.
Now Joey has to respond to the abovementioned charge on or before 18:00 GMT on Thursday. Joey Barton is well known for his uncooperative behavior on and off the field. And recently he was given a ban of 2 match touchline and also a fine of £2,000 after he was found guilty for the offense of misconduct during a match which was held on 22nd of December, 2018.
However, the former midfielder of Newcastle, Burnley, and Manchester has admitted that he has used insulting and/or abusive’ language in the game and has also questioned the integrity of an official which is against the code and conduct of the Association of Football. So it will be interesting to see how Joey will respond to the charges.
