Joey Barton is still banned

Even though Joey Barton has moved to an entirely new country to play in a completely different league, his 12 game ban for trying to beat up an entire team on his own still applies.  Nae luck, Joseph.

Now on loan at Marseille, the midfielder must serve the remaining nine games of his suspension whilst in sunny France, eating baguettes and fondling his cousin in the garage like that time when I thought no-one else would see.  WAT.  Here's some official looking copy:
"In accordance with article 12 of Fifa's Regulations for the Status and Transfer of Players, the sanction is applicable in France."
So there you go.  His new team mate Andre Ayew has already been charmed by the former QPR captain saying that he's "truly a nice person" and that he can't wait to see him on the pitch.  What he hasn't realised is that Joey doesn't know McDonalds in France serves beer yet.  YOU WHAT FRENCHY!???
