Senderos Says Joey Barton Will “Come In Your Face” (Video)

There is no denying the fact that Newcastle’s Joey Barton is one of the dirtier footballers in Europe.  Even he would likely admit that much.  However, even he isn’t as dirty as Fulham defender Phillipe Senderos claimed he was during a recent appearance on ESPN’s Talk of the Terrace.

When asked about the incident between Barton and Arsenal’s Gervinho from a few weeks ago, Senderos had the following to say:

“With Joey Barton you know what to expect. He’s going to come strong in the tackle and he’s going to come in your face.”

That rather odd choice of words didn’t go unnoticed among his peers, as everyone seemed to get a good laugh out of it.  Even Barton seemed to enjoy it, as he posted the following on his Twitter.

For a man who is already capable of striking fear into the eyes of his opponents, it is nice to hear that fear is the only thing Barton’s counterparts need to worry about protecting their eyes from.  Here is a look at Senderos’ slip of the tongue.
