Joey Barton was in the away end at the Emirates for Marseille match, not impressed with “Highbury” atmosphere

Joey Barton was in the away end at the Emirates for Marseille match, not impressed with Highbury atmosphereAfter spending a loan spell in Ligue 1 with Marseille last season, Joey Barton took the opportunity to see his old club as they went down to a 2-0 defeat at Arsenal on Tuesday night.

Now a key part of QPR’s promotion push, Barton openly admits he has a soft spot for OM but would not take a huge drop in wages to return to French football.

Barton appeared to enjoy his experience in the away end at the Emirates and couldn’t resist taking a dig at the atmosphere at Arsenal’s home ground.

Sending out one Tweet in the second half, saying: “So quiet here tonight at Highbury…”

The combative midfielder was magnanimous later on with another Tweet: “Pity about the result. Arsenal much too strong tonight…”
