World Football's 15 Most Famous Insults

In what is a rare occurrence for media darling and national treasure Joey Barton, he has been making headlines...but not for footballing reasons.

This week, when Barton’s Olympique de Marseille took on Paris Saint-Germain in a Coupe de France game, after a clash with PSG’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic, he seemed to comment on the size of Zlatan’s nose.

In fact, if my lip-reading skills are up to scratch, I would suggest he calls Zlatan:

“A big ******* nosed *****.”

Before eloquently reminding him:

“You’ve got a big nose.”

When people told you to “do your talking on the pitch”, Joey, this wasn’t what they had in mind.

So what are football’s other most famous insults?
