Barton receives 12-match ban for Dabo assault

Newcastle United midfielder Joey Barton has been banned for 12 games, six of them suspended, for attacking a team mate while at former club Manchester City.

Barton received his punishment, which takes immediate effect, at a Football Association disciplinary hearing on Friday after admitting a charge of violent conduct against Ousmane Dabo. He was also fined 25,000 pounds.
