Ousmane Dabo has described Joey Barton as a "coward" and criticised Newcastle for lacking "ethics and morals".

Barton was handed a four-month suspended jail sentence on Monday for attacking Frenchman Dabo when they were team-mates at Manchester City.

"I almost lost an eye. It was a terrible day and although I was not traumatised, I wanted the trial to come round," The 31-year-old said. "He admits he behaved in a cowardly way, and he is a coward. He did not talk to me or apologise, but it did not trouble me to see him again."
