QPR fullback Luke Young is delighted to have Joey Barton as captain.
Playing alongside the explosive Barton was one of the big attractions for Young as he prepared to leave Aston Villa.
âJoey is probably as close to the all-round midfielder as you can get,â claimed Young.
âHe has grown up a lot. Heâs 29 now and he knows the mistakes he has made are in the past. Hopefully he has learned from them and heâll be looking to have a really strong season because heâs still got international ambitions.
âWeâve done really well to get hold of him. Heâs got a bit of everything. He creates a lot of goals and thatâs one thing weâre going to need in this league.â
