Earlier this week, Barnsley filed a formal complaint to both the English Football League and the Football Association over the alleged incident. "With regards to the alleged incident on Saturday following our game against Barnsley, I emphatically deny the allegations made," Barton said in a statement https://www.fleetwoodtownfc.com/news/2019/april/statement-from-joey-barton.
"Given this matter has not been formally closed, it would be inappropriate for me to make any further comment." The police confirmed on Wednesday that a man has been arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence and racially aggravated assault, and released on bail until next month.
