Barton banned for 12 games

Troubled midfielder Joey Barton has been banned for 12 games.

Barton,contracted with Newcastle United has been banned for 12 games and 6 of which are suspensions for his assault on his former team mate Dabo at Manchester City.

Barton who was earlier given a four month suspended prison sentence after he pleaded guilty to the attack.

Along with the ban,Barton has been ordered to pay 25,000 pounds for violent conduct.

All of the suspended matches will be invoked should he be found guilty of similar charges of violent conduct or on the pitch for violent actions.

The judgment seems to be lenient considering there was positive feedback given by Newcastle United and especially by Kevin Keegan,ex manager of Newcastle.
