QPR's Marseille loanee Barton not worried about ex-Man Utd ace Beckham

Marseille midfielder Joey Barton insists he will not be bothered by David Beckham's presence this weekend.

Barton and his OM teammates meet French league leaders Paris Saint-Germain - Beckham's new club - on Sunday but the QPR man says he is not going to worry about taking on the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star.

"Paris have a lot of big names and big players. Beckham is a big star off the pitch but on the pitch it's not a big worry," he said.

"He causes a lot less fear compared to when he played in the Premier League. It would be naive to concentrate on David Beckham."
