He needs locking away: Barnsley fans call for Barton to be jailed

Barnsley fans on Twitter have been calling for Joey Barton to be handed a prison sentence after he allegedly assaulted manager Daniel Stendel after the game on Saturday.

The Fleetwood boss apparently attacked Stendel in the tunnel after full-time at the weekend and was stopped from leaving Oakwell by police units.

Tykes fans have been calling for Barton to be locked up after the alleged attack which forced their manager to have emergency dental treatment.

This is not Barton’s first run-in with the law after he was sentenced to six months behind bars in 2008 for assault and he also faced disciplinary action for stubbing a cigarette out in another players eye whilst he was at Manchester City.

The controversial 36-year-old had seemingly turned a corner after foraying into management with Fleetwood Town this season but his latest violent attack has left his reputation in tatters once again.
