Joey Barton appointed Fleetwood Town head coach

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - English third-tier side Fleetwood Town announced on Wednesday that they have appointed former Manchester City midfielder Joey Barton as head coach on a three-year deal.

The 35-year-old, who is currently banned from football for betting offences, will take over on June 2 when his suspension ends and replaces John Sheridan at the League One side.

Barton, who has also played for Newcastle United, Queens Park Rangers and Burnley, as well as Scottish side Rangers, was banned from football for 18 months after admitting to placing 1,260 bets between March 26, 2006 and May 13, 2016.
