Joey Barton update: the great man will be making his long awaited league debut for Marseille tomorrow night against Lille.
In anticipation of this momentous occasion, he has given an interview to l’Equipe newspaper in which he shows that he hasn’t lost his sense of humour:
“I shouldn’t say this, but perhaps I’m too intelligent to be a footballer.”
Well, it made the French public laugh, anyway. To quote one of the comments on the Equipe website, I can’t wait to see him get Zlataned when they play PSG.
