QPR's Barton set for Marseille debut

QPR midfielder Joey Barton is set to make his Olympique Marseille debut tonight.

The midfielder, 30, is still only five games into a 12-match FA ban for his red-card bust-up at Manchester City on the final day of last season.

But the suspension does not apply to European competitions — leaving him free to play in the Europa League clash with Turkish giants Fenerbahce in Istanbul. He tweeted: “Istanbul and Fenerbahce await. Heard it’s some atmosphere in there.”
