Barton admits FA charge

13 Aug 2008 - 16:12:57

Newcastle United midfielder Joey Barton has admitted a Football Association charge of misconduct relating to an incident involving former team-mate Ousmane Dabo.

The incident occurred while the pair were Manchester City players at the club's Carrington training ground on May 1 2007 and, after pleading guilty to assault at Manchester Crown Court last month, Barton was given a suspended sentence.

Barton left City for St James' Park in a £5.8million transfer in June 2007.

"Newcastle United midfielder Joey Barton has admitted a charge of violent conduct and requested a personal hearing," read an FA statement.

"A hearing before a regulatory commission will be scheduled in due course."

Barton was released from prison on July 28 after serving two months of a six-month sentence for a separate assault.

The 25-year-old was convicted of the offence after being filmed punching a man in Liverpool city centre at the end of last year.
