Joey Barton Could Face Action Over Tweets

9 years ago

Joey Barton has been up to his old tricks, annoying people on the other side of the channel this time.

A statement on the Paris St.Germain website has claimed that Barton made unacceptable remarks on Twitter regarding their Brazilian defender Thiago Silva.

Barton said that Silva, “…looks like an overweight ladyboy.”

PSG statement says that they ‘reserve the right to take any action they deem necessary’ regarding Barton’s ‘unacceptable remarks’.

Silva was quoted earlier in the week saying;

“There is a Marseille player, I can’t remember his name, an Englishman, who said bad things about Neymar and Brazilian football, also about Beckham and Ibrahimovic. Because no one is talking about him it seems it is fun for him to criticise great players for people to know that he exists.”

After Silva starred for PSG against Barca in midweek, Barton replied with;

“Have to take back what I said about Thiago Silva being over-rated. Been immense tonight (v Barca). Still looks like an overweight ladyboy though!

Two questions for Silva;

firstly, why are you talking about me before PSG v Barca?

Secondly, are you pre-op or post-op?”

Marseille have issued an apology on Barton’s behalf and called on Barton to cease his ‘uploading of ungracious comments’.

Looking at Barton’s past history they must be joking.
