Joey Barton has apologized for comparing poor Bristol Rovers performances to the Holocaust at a press conference. After his team’s defeat at home to Newport on Saturday, the manager made the parallel.
Barton said after the 3-1 loss: “Someone gets in and does well but then gets suspended or injured. Someone gets in for a game, does well but then has a Holocaust, a nightmare, an absolute disaster.”
On Thursday, Barton issued an apology. “I’m just going to say there were some comments made after the press conference last week where clearly no offence was meant, but some people have rightly pointed out to me the use of the analogy was not correct.
