PostSubject: Barton handed double charge..(Football/Soccer)   Tue May 15, 2012 8:19 pm

QPR midfielder Joey Barton has been hit with
two charges of violent conduct by the Football Association for his
actions during the defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.

Former City midfielder Barton was sent off during QPR's dramatic 3-2 reverse at the Etihad Stadium for elbowing Carlos Tevez.

Barton then compounded his woes by kicking Sergio Aguero and
attempting to headbutt Vincent Kompany before being escorted off the
pitch by his team-mates.

Barton will now be banned for QPR's first four games next season but
he could end up with a longer suspension - possibly up to nine matches.

The FA said in a statement: "The FA has today charged Queens Park
Rangers midfielder Joey Barton in relation to two acts of alleged
violent conduct during Sunday's match against Manchester City at the
Etihad Stadium.

"Following the player's dismissal in the 54th minute of the fixture,
there followed two incidents involving Manchester City's Sergio Aguero
and Vincent Kompany.

"As Barton had already been dismissed, both of these incidents fell outside of the jurisdiction of the referee."
