Strong words from Joey Barton for OM


By: Manu Tournoux

Former Olympique de Marseille player, Joey Barton was present in the aisles of Falmer Stadium to watch the clash between Brighton and OM.

Joey Barton has been in the news a lot in recent days. Blame it on his publications on social networks. After publishing sexist and mysoristic tweets, the former England international announced his retirement from football due to the corruption and pedophilia that reign there.

But Thursday evening, it was a message of love that he published, just after attending the meeting between Brighton and OM among the Marseille supporters. “I just came back from the match against OM. This is not the result we wanted. I can’t thank the 1987 South Winners enough for looking after us. A real club. See you soon at the Vélodrome. Forza OM! “, he wrote.

Staying for just one season at Olympique de Marseille (2012-13), Joey Barton established a very strong relationship with Olympian supporters.
