Reds boss Stendel had to have emergency surgery on his teeth after colliding with a metal section of the Oakwell tunnel following his side’s 4-2 win over Fleetwood Town on April 13. Fleetwood manager Joey Barton was accused by Barnsley players of causing the German’s injuries and spoken to by police.
A man was arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated public order offence and racially aggravated assault later that week but bailed until May. The man has now been bailed until next month.
Barton has ‘emphatically’ denied allegations that he assaulted Stendel. He was in the news again last week as his stag party in Newquay allegedly ended in a violent brawl on a beach.
In a statement, South Yorkshire Police told the Chronicle: “The man arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated public order offence and racially aggravated assault, in connection to an incident at Barnsley Football Club on Saturday 13 April has been further bailed until July.”
