JOEY Barton has been found not guilty of assaulting a rival manager Barnsley coach Daniel Stendel

At the time, Stendel was managing Barnsley and Barton was in charge of Fleetwood Town.

Former England international Barton had firmly denied assaulting the German coach.

Barton started his football career with Manchester City in 2002 after going through their youth system and went on to make 150 appearances for the club.

He then moved to Newcastle United in a £5.8million transfer in July 2007 before leaving for Queens Park Rangers in August 2011.

The midfielder was then put on loan to French side Marseille during the 2012-13 season before making his way to Burnley for one season – helping promote them to the Premier League.

Barton made one appearance for England in 2007.
