Returning To Football Will Be Difficult - Joey Barton

Former Burney Midfielder Joey Barton admits it will be difficult for him to make a comeback after his 18-month ban for betting infringements but insists he hasn't given up hope of a return to English football.
Barton was handed the suspension after admitting Football Association charges that accused him of having placed 1,260 bets on matches between 2006 and 2013, including 42 bets on 20 matches involving teams he was registered with. Barton was released by the Clarets at the end of the season but insists he is not yet ready to retire and has already submitted an appeal against the length of his ban and has admitted a comeback is unlikely should that appeal be rejected

He said “You can work in six-month windows, you can potentially work in 12-month windows but if it's 18 months - that's the better part of 60, 70 football matches. It makes it really difficult and certainly at the age that I'm at, it makes it incredibly difficult. It makes it an even better story should you have the audacity to pull it off.”
