Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whose nose was mocked by Marseille's Joey Barton on Wednesday night, responded with two goals as Paris Saint Germain thumped their southern French opponents 2-0.

Englishman and Marseille player Joey Barton caught the attention of football fans and international media on Wednesday night when he was filmed making gestures mocking the size of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's nose.

Barton could be clearly seen showing his eloquent anatomical opinions about Ibrahimovic's features, using one hand to indicate just how far he considered the Swede's snout actually extended from his face.

This Joey Barton is nothing but a tug and a hooligan who may one day end up in prison like his class-act-murderous brother.

"..mocking the size of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's nose." is pretty mild behaviour by someone with Joey Barton's reputation.
Still, a good way of keeping a certain Swedish footballer in the news...LOL!

Little boys are always jealous of what the big boys have.
Seems little joey's running a bit low on self esteem and needs to share:)

Comparing zlatan with Joey Barton is like comparing a rat with an elephant. Zlatan is not not in the same class wit joey at all. I do not even know who Joey is. Every football fan will never forget zlatan in a haste after the superclass bashing of england.
