Joey Barton: Football 'is Peter Pan world'


Newcastle United footballer Joey Barton has rarely been out of the headlines. Sentenced to six months in prison for a vicious assault on a 16 year old teenager, and involved in numerous brawls with other footballers, the former bad-boy of football appears to have turned his career around.

Mr Barton is now involved with Sporting Chance, a charity founded by Today's guest editor, Tony Adams.

Today presenter Sarah Montague spoke to Mr Barton about his reputation.
