Bristol Rovers manager Joey Barton due to go on trial


ristol Rovers manager Joey Barton is expected to go on trial later over an alleged assault on a fellow football boss following a match.

Former England international Barton, 38, is accused of pushing the then Barnsley manager, Daniel Stendel, at the South Yorkshire side’s Oakwell Stadium in April 2019, leaving the German coach with a damaged tooth.

Barton was charged following an incident in the tunnel after the League One match between Barnsley and Fleetwood, which ended in a 4-2 victory for the home team.

He has pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

Barton is due to go on trial later on Monday at Sheffield Crown Court before the Recorder of Sheffield, Judge Jeremy Richardson QC.
