Banned Joey Barton Raps English FA for Barring his GAME4GRENFELL Charity match appearance

Banned English player, Joey Barton is out rapping the FA for extending his ban to charitable causes after the player’s attempt to take part in the GAME4GRENFELL was blocked.

Barton, who was slapped with a £30,000 fine and 13-month ban (after an appeal) from all football related activities, is serving punishment for breaking FA rules for placing 1,260 bets on matches between 26 March 2006 and 13 May 2016.

On Friday, the 34-year-old shared a response to his offer of playing in the charity match organized by his former club, Queens Park Rangers, Record Label Columbia Record and other bodies to show support to those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire disaster in June.


Barton tweeted: “I would have loved to be supporting the #Game4Grenfell at Loftus Road on 02.09.17.

“…but @FA have decided my ban extends to helping a great cause. So unfortunately, unless someone engages their brain, I won’t make it.”

The initiative, a 90 minutes football match will have footballers (retired and active) as well as Music stars like Tinie Tempah and Olly Murs participate on September 2.

The Grenfell tower inferno which claimed many lives, also affected some British citizens of Nigerian decent.
