Joey Barton condemned after saying women ‘not qualified’ to speak on men’s football in online tirade | UK News | Sky News


The former manager, who was sacked by Bristol Rovers in October, claimed women “shouldn’t be talking with any kind of authority” on men’s football.

The former manager, who was sacked by Bristol Rovers in October, claimed on social media that women “shouldn’t be talking with any kind of authority in the men’s game”.
“If you don’t accept that. We will always see things differently. The women’s game is thriving. Fantastic to see. I cannot take a thing they say serious in the men’s arena.”
The former Manchester City player also said female commentators are “like me talking about knitting or netball”, and added in a separate post: “Out the stadiums and off the concourse’s with the influencer f****** nonsense.”
Barton will face no action from the Football Association for breaking its rules on such comments because he made them while out of work and is deemed outside its jurisdiction.
