Now a notorious tweeter, Barton has been winding up celebrities and other footballers for months. His latest victim was PSG's Thiago Silva, and he's not taken it well. Joey Barton started off with the eloquently put -
“Thiago Silva. That same pussy that has been injured all season. Another over-rated Brazilian. Sort your hamstrings out Fatboy.”Silva remarked that Joey Barton was an "attention seeker" and wanted to defeat Barcelona to "shut him up". Barton thought long and hard about his response and came up with -
"Have to take back what I said about Thiago Silva being over-rated today. Been immense tonight. Still looks like a overweight ladyboy though!"Swiftly followed up with
"2 questions for Thiago Silva. Firstly, Why are YOU talking about ME, in your press conference before PSG v Barca? Very strange. Secondly, Are you Pre-Op or Post-Op? #transsexual #thiagosaladyboy. Baffles me, which way he's going. Is he a man changing to a woman or a woman changing to a man? Can't work it out."I genuinely can't figure out his ladyboy remarks. Has he just completely ran out of insults? He could at least start making some up, like cunt-face McGraw or clunge monger. PSG have said they reserve the right to take any action deemed necessary. Hopefully they exercise that right, with a Zlatan karate kick to the face.
