Barton was more controversial when a female police officer prevented his car, driven by Fleetwood chief executive Steve Curwood, from leaving the ground. The car was allowed to continue after a distance of two minutes.

The 37-year-old was therefore not interviewed by the police and by Sunday afternoon the Fleetwood manager was still not questioned.

A South Yorkshire police spokesperson said: & # 39; South Yorkshire police will continue to investigate reports of an attack at Barnsley Football Club in the afternoon of Saturday, April 13. No arrests have been made and investigations are continuing. & # 39;
