• Barton said to have clashed with Barnsley’s Daniel Stendel
• ‘The club can confirm there was an alleged incident in tunnel’
Police were investigating an incident in the tunnel involving Joey Barton after Barnsley’s match against Fleetwood at Oakwell.
The Barnsley striker Cauley Woodrow tweeted that Barton, the Fleetwood manager, confronted his Barnsley counterpart, Daniel Stendel, after the game, which ended 4-2 to the home team. The tweet has since been deleted. Woodrow, who scored his side’s second goal, alleged that Barton had left Stendel with “blood pouring from his face”.
