Barton escapes FA action over Mendes tackle

The Football Association have decided to take no further action against Manchester City's Joey Barton following his tackle which injured Portsmouth's Pedro Mendes at Fratton Park 10 days ago and despite complaints from Pompey fans he had made offensive gestures.

The FA have been in contact with Hampshire Police at their invitation after the constabulary issued a statement that something 'of concern' had occurred at the end of the match.

But an FA spokesman said: 'From the investigations we have made and the information received there is not enough evidence to proceed with any action against Joey Barton.'

The verdict will delight City manager Stuart Pearce who has stood up loyally for his controversial midfielder.

However, it will not please Pompey boss Harry Redknapp who claimed the England midfielder had deliberately stamped on Mendes and that anybody who thinks it was an accident 'needs their head looking at.'

The 24-year-old was only booked by referee Mike Dean for his 41st-minute challenge from behind which saw Mendes carried off on a stretcher.

Redknapp's protestations to Dean for stronger action have landed him with an FA charge of verbally abusing a match official and he has until next Monday to request a personal hearing.

Mendes, however, is given a good chance of making his comeback in Pompey's next match at Blackburn on Sunday after scans showed he had only badly bruised his Achilles tendon.
