VIDEO: Sounds like Joey Barton has a bad dose of the 'Schteves'

Over in Ligue 1, JB has been hit with the worst case of accent change since a certain Mr McClaren went all double Dutch on us.

JOEY BARTON MADE his first league start for Marseille last night after finally serving out the remainder of a 12-match ban for his little hissy-fit against Manchester City at the end of last season.

Joey still looks the same but when he spoke to the media after the 1-0 win against Lille, his accent sounded a little, emm, different.

A little more French, to be precise.

It can happen to the best of us though — just ask “Schteve” McClaren.
