Joey Barton: Police prevent Fleetwood Town boss from leaving Oakwell following assault allegations on Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel

Footage has emerged of Fleetwood boss Joey Barton being prevented from leaving Oakwell following accusations he assaulted Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel.

The alleged incident happened after Town’s 4-2 defeat at Barnsley in League One.

Barton appears to be in hot water over the incident

It is understood Barton and Stendel had to be separated after the full-time whistle but the former Manchester City player reportedly followed his opposite number towards the dressing rooms.

Tykes forward Cauley Woodrow took to Twitter to describe the incident, claiming Stendel had blood pouring from his face afterwards. The post has since been deleted.
