Barton: "I would love to coach OM one day"
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."
