Video: Joey Barton punches Morten Gamst Pedersen
Mr Angry gets angry again
With Joey Barton being touted for an England call-up in some circles he clearly decided that meant he hadn’t pressed the self-destruct button enough of late. The Newcastle midfielder punched Blackburn’s Morten Gamst Pedersen in the chest after the most minor of shoulder brushes between the pair.
The incident was missed by the referee, which means Barton is highly likely to receive retrospective action over the incident.
It is also strange that Barton should lose the plot over such a non-clash when he took being kicked off the park by Wolves all afternoon in relatively good humour.
And come on: Morten Gamst Pedersen? That’s like picking a fight with Westlife.
