Ousmane Dabo has ducked questions about Newcastle United midfielder Joey Barton.

Dabo is part of the New England Revolution squad that will tackle Manchester United at the Gillette Stadium on Wednesday evening in the first game of their five-match US Tour.

It is a neat coincidence, given the man who infamously attacked him on the City training ground, Joey Barton, has been denied a US visa for Newcastle's short tour due to his criminal record.

"I don't want to speak about him," said Dabo. "It went to court and he pleaded guilty. It was over from that moment.

"I don't know what he is doing and I don't care."
