Fleetwood Town manager Joey Barton charged by police

Fleetwood Town manager Joey Barton has been charged with causing actual bodily harm following a post-match incident in the tunnel at Barnsley on 13 April.

Police say the incident, after the Tykes beat Fleetwood 4-2 in a League One game at Oakwell, left a man with facial injuries.

Barton has previously "emphatically denied" accusations he confronted Barnsley manager Daniel Stendel.

The 36-year-old has been bailed until 9 October.

Barton is a former Burnley and Newcastle United midfielder.
