Joey Barton – Ousmane Dabo
Rivals since 2007
Joey Barton was having conflicts with any team he played in – both with mates and opponents. He even conflicted with Neymar calling him “Cat piss”. However, the most scandalous incident took place when he played for Manchester City when he hit his mate Ousmane Dabo very hard.
“Ousmane was bigger than me. But it happened just like that. Bang, bang, bang and it was over. The truth is, he started the fight and I finished it”, said Barton.
The footballer was given a four-month suspended sentence and a 2-month public work by the Court. Manchester City never wasted time and sold him to New Castle at once.
