Barton… “At the end of the day, the lads gave me 110%, and you can’t ask for more than that. Now wharrayou lookin’ at, softlad?”

Yes, Olympique de Marseille fruitloop Joey Barton does indeed intend to go into coaching, revealing in a Twitter exchange with Everton captain Phil Neville that he shall be doing his A and B badges this summer.

Neville himself has just been handed a coaching role with England Under 21, but it’s the Joey Barton coaching badges that register as the more alarming. It all began with this chipper morning tweet from the Toffees skipper…

Morning gym work done already-great win for bury last night just what was needed-have a great day troops

He was then quizzed by a fan…

“@rishanandaraj: @fizzer18 what time do you get up to have already done morning gym work??!!!”5.45am-im a busy man!

…before Barton piped up with the following quip…

@fizzer18 @rishanandaraj definitely going to be a manager getting up at that hour. All gaffers love about 4 hrs kip…

To which Barton said, chillingly…

We did though get to see the softer side of Barton…

“@joey7barton: congrats on u21’s role. Be good for them to see dedication needed to play attop for as long as you have Fizz.” Hah thanks

Joey Barton a coach? They’ve got to get a FOX camera crew in for that, surely?
