QPR's Barton pleased with Marseille debut

QPR midfielder Joey Barton made his Marseille debut last night in the Europa League against Fenerbahce but was substituted with his side 2-0 down - though they went on to draw 2-2.

The Englishman moved to the Ligue 1 side on loan from QPR earlier this season, although he has not been able to play domestically because of suspension.

He tweeted afterwards: "What a place to make your debut! Atmosphere was incredible. Thoroughly deserved point that. What a team spirit!! #allezlom

"On a personal note. Great to get 70 mins. Cramped up a bit but thats normal after so long without a game and only a couple of weeks training".
