Gareth Barry Accepts the FA Charge of Misconduct: Receives One Match Ban


Manchester City will be without their English central midfielder Gareth Barry after he accepted an FA charge relating to his conduct in the Manchester City vs. Manchester United game on Sunday.

Barry was charged by the FA after Mark Clattenburg reported him for using abusive and inappropriate language towards the fourth official. Barry has decided to accept the FA’s punishment of a one game ban. The City man was very unhappy with the referee and the linesmen at the end of the Manchester Derby. He had heated words with them as he stormed down the tunnel at the end of the game. His manager Roberto Mancini also spoke about Barry’s anger at the officials after the game. “The referee and linesmen made some mistakes today. I don’t know what Gareth said [to them],” he confirmed in his post-match interview.

City and Barry were perplexed that he was reported for exchanging words with the referee and were said to be extremely disappointed at the FA’s decision to punish him. However, the threat of a further ban prompted Barry to accept his punishment and not attempt an appeal. He will now miss the game away to Newcastle as his team attempts to recover from defeat last weekend.
