Like him or loathe him, Joey Barton is a rare breed in the football media. An intelligent out spoken, passionate, football fan with an honest opinion.
The former QPR midfielder tells 5 live Sport that the culture in English football is “rotten from top to bottom” following the team’s exit from European Championships.
The culture within English football isn’t changing. St Georges Park, isn’t going to change anything. Its rotten from top to bottom. England will always under perform at national tournaments until change is made.
Barton also claims that players who do not make themselves eligible for the Under-21s should not be considered for selection for the national team for several years after.
Is he spot on or just bitter?
