The Tweets: Joey Barton lays into Neymar, calls him a #showpony

During last night’s England-Brazil international friendly, Joey Barton was very vocal about Santos starlet Neymar.

Like many in England, you suspect Barton had not seen much of Neymar before and was hoping he would live up to the hype.

After the match, when asked about Barton’s criticism, Neymar responded with his own put down of Barton, which in all truth was probably not meant as an offence.

Neymar responded: “I don’t know who he is. I just have to keep doing my job for the Seleção. It did not go as I had expected or wanted. I would have liked to help the team more, but today was not my day. Next time.”

Well, this just angered Barton more who has since been Tweeting from Marseille on Thursday morning:
