Marseille No2 Passi: QPR's Barton set for Euro debut

Olympique Marseille assistant coach Franck Passi says on-loan QPR midfielder Joey Barton could make his debut in the Europa League against Fenerbahce.

Although he is not yet up to match fitness, Passi has been encouraged by the way Barton has tried to integrate himself into the team.

"He's spent two months without training normally. Physically, he'll need a little more time but it's possible that he takes part in the Europa League match," Passi said.

He added: "He's a technically very sound player, he participates a lot and he's trying to integrate himself to the very full in our football culture."
