Former Olympique de Marseille midfielder Joey Barton has revealed to L'Equipe that he would love to coach the club one day.

Freshly embarked on a coaching career with third-tier English club Fleetwood, the 36-year-old retains great affection for OM, the club he played for 25 times in Ligue 1 Conforama in 2012-2013.

The Englishman said: "I would love to coach OM one day. Honestly, I could coach Marseille no problem. I know the club inside out, I understand the peple and the culture. I know the Vélodrome and I know what the club means to people. A lot of OM coaches don't know the club. If my coaching journey takes me there, then fantastic."
