MORRISEY’S favourite footballer Joey Barton will miss his club’s pre-season trip to the United States after being denied a visa.
The 28-year-old Newcastle player, who was given a six-month jail sentence after admitting assault and affray in 2008, has been denied the necessary permission to travel with the rest of the first-team Magpies’ squad when they leave on Sunday.
Newcastle said that Barton will instead link up with Peter Beardsley’s reserves when they head for Holland tomorrow.
He said on Twitter: “Totally hypocrisy considering what they get up to, but rules are rules…”
