Joey Barton says Wayne Rooney is NOT world class

However, he says the Man United striker is “the epitome of a class Englishman”.

NOT A MAN who is ever afraid to voice a controversial opinion, Joey Barton has once again come up with a somewhat provocative view.

The QPR midfielder says that Wayne Rooney, while being “the epitome of a class Englishman,” is not world class.

Barton compares the England star unfavourably to his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, saying that while Ronaldo has fulfilled his early promise, Rooney has failed to do so.
