Joey Barton has been reported to the police by Ousmane Dabo over the alleged attack on his Manchester City team-mate.

Dabo was left unconscious and with a bruised eye after a supposed brawl with Barton at the club's training ground on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old Frenchman was admitted to hospital for treatment on his eye, nose, and lip.

Barton could face a court case for assault as Dabo has asked police to press charges.

A police spokeswoman said: "Greater Manchester police has received a report from a 30-year-old man that he was assaulted. Inquiries are ongoing."

Barton, 24, has been suspended for the rest of the season by City and could be sold in the summer after a history of bad behaviour.

Dabo revealed on Thursday he is in talks with his lawyers over suing Barton for the training ground bust-up.

In December 2004, Barton was fined six weeks' wages after he stubbed a cigar into team-mate Jamie Tandy's eye at the club's Christmas party.

Seven months later, Barton was fined eight weeks wages after a scrap with team-mate Richard Dunne and a 15-year-old Everton fan.

In March, Barton was arrested on suspicion of assault and criminal damage in an argument with a taxi driver in Liverpool.
