PA:Press Association1 Joey Barton has denied claims he attacked Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel
He has been bailed until May and South Yorkshire Police are investigating the incident.
German boss Stendel, 45, lost two teeth in a tunnel scuffle after an incident in the tunnel.
The ex-England and Manchester City ace, 36, tweeted: "With regards to the alleged incident on Saturday following our game against Barnsley, I emphatically deny all the allegations made.
"Given this matter has not been formally closed, it would be inappropriate for me to make any further comment."
Barnsley complained to the FA and EFL about an incident in the tunnel at Oakwell after Saturday's clash.
Barton was said to be furious at seeing one of his players sent off in the 4-2 loss.
A steward and a cop stopped Barton’s BMW from leaving the ground.
Barnsley striker Cauley Woodrow called Barton “foul” in a tweet that was then deleted.
