Fleetwood boss Joey Barton has been sued by the Football Association after being sent off the sidelines for the second time this season.
Barton received a red card from referee Kevin Johnson late in the 1-0 League One victory of Tuesday night at Wycombe and is now in charge of remarks he allegedly made against match officials.
An FA statement said: “Joey Barton has been accused of a breach of FA rule E3.
Fleetwood boss Joey Barton was charged by the FA after the second red card of the season
“It is claimed that the language of the Fleetwood Town FC manager in front of a match official in the 94th minute of an EFL League One match against Wycombe Wanderers FC on Tuesday, February 11, 2020 was abusive and / or offensive and / or inappropriate and / or questioned their integrity.
“He has until Monday, February 17, 2020 to answer.”
Former Manchester City, Newcastle, QPR and Burnley midfielder Barton was not the only member of the Fleetwood party to see red in Adams Park – striker Ched Evans was previously fired for a challenge against Jason McCarthy.
It is the second time that this campaign has sent the 37-year-old Fleetwood manager of the transmission line.
He was banished to the stands during his party’s 0-0 draw with Bristol Rovers on December 29 about his protests after seeing an Evans attack barred from offside.
