Marseille signing Joey Barton hopes to match the success of Chris Waddle and Trevor Steven at his new club.

The QPR midfielder join l'OM last week on-loan.

Speaking to the division's official website, the 30-year-old said: "English players have done well in France.

"Cole, Cascarino, Waddle, Steven.. French football is top-level football. There is the problem with the cultural differences and the languages and I will have to adapt."
