Speaking at his press conference ahead of Bristol Rovers ‘clash with Harrogate Town, Barton said:’ I’m just going to say that there were some comments made after the press conference last week where it was clearly not intended to offend, but some people have pointed out rightly so to me, the use of the analogy was not correct.

“The FA wrote to me this week to remind us of our language and communications, and the last thing you want to do is offend or annoy someone.

So if anyone was offended by that, I would like to apologize for that and I think the FA was right to write to me and remind me.

‘You hope to use better analogies in the future, but it certainly was without malice or offense to anyone.

The FA reviewed the post-match interview in which it heard Barton say the following: “I told the guys during the week, ‘the team is almost like musical chairs.’ Someone walks in and does it right, but then he’s suspended or injured.

“Someone enters a game, they do it well, but then they have a Holocaust, a nightmare, an absolute disaster.”

Despite writing to Barton about the use of his language, the Football Association decided not to sanction the coach as the comment did not violate its rules.

Reflecting further on the situation, the 39-year-old Bristol Rovers boss said: “I think this is my next natural opportunity to speak to the press.

“ I am forced to talk to you every week after the games, a lot of times when I really don’t want to, but it’s part of the job and part of what you have to do and responsibilities.

Barton also mentioned how the FA had written to him about the incident, although it was revealed that he will not face penalties for his comments.

‘It is our duty to be perfect and not create controversies.

‘I understand the world we live in and the people we work with and some of our acquaintances have to produce content and generate the opportunity to get people’s attention through clicks.

‘I understand that everything we say, even what I am saying now, will undoubtedly be assembled in such a way that it will be there to grab and grab the attention of people using social media, the internet, blah blah blah. .

“ My next natural progression in terms of speaking to the media is here, and I felt like that was the way to deal with it rather than the club releasing a statement, blah blah blah.

“ For me, it was a bad analogy to use in the context of the modern world we live in, and it won’t happen again. ”
