Joey Barton does a Steve McClaren

Remember when Steve McClaren carried out an interview on Dutch TV with a funny Dutch accent? Looks like Joey Barton’s done exactly the same thing after making his Ligue 1 debut in a 1-0 win for Marseille against Lille…

Barton went on to make the obvious usual statements such as “Perhaps I shouldn’t say it, but I’m maybe a little too intelligent to be a footballer”. He tweeted since the incident that as he can’t speak French he decided to carry it out in the voice of an Allo Allo character, before going on to tweet that he has named his new language “Bartonese”. Say what you want about Joey, at least he comes out with some interesting stuff…
