...and none for Joey Barton.

Newcastle United midfielder Joey Barton could face FA punishment over ‘obscene gesture’ to Fernando Torres

 

 

Joey Barton will find out on Monday whether he will be in trouble with the Football Association following what has been described as an obscene gesture towards Liverpool striker Fernando Torres at St James’ Park.


Officials at the game’s governing body will examine referee Lee Mason’s match report before deciding whether to act against the Newcastle midfielder, who has a history of disciplinary problems, over his crude actions in a second-half altercation with Torres.

An FA spokesman said: “Essentially what will happen for an incident like that is that the FA will wait for the referee’s report and if the referee includes something about incident and that he had seen it but it hadn’t warranted a caution then he may not get sanctioned at all.

“The disciplinary people will sit down and if they need to get video evidence they will do. If there is other video evidence suggesting that he did break the rules then there is a chance that an investigation might take place.”
 

Barton has been tipped to leave Tyneside for West Ham United in January but the new Newcastle manager, Alan Pardew, said it was “very important” to keep him in the North-East although a £65,000-per-week contract that lasts until June 2012 renders him an expensive asset.

“Joey Barton’s performance shows what colours he wears,” Pardew said. “Obviously I haven’t looked at length of contracts just yet. I need to look at all of that and make sure we plan it right. But Joey, as you can imagine, is very, very high in my thinking.”
