Joey Barton has always been up for a challenge, and history shows he has stepped over the line once or twice.
In an advert for Irish bookmaker Paddy Power, he does just that by tasering a tea lady.
The midfielder recently lashed out, via Twitter, at the person who leaked the Roy Hodgson “Monkey” story to the media:
I'm more worried about the player that leaked it to the journalist. To have a snake in the camp, is more worrying.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) October 17, 2013
Whoever it was had better hope Barton does not find out, and does not have a taser in hand should they bump into each other, judging by the impact it has on the unfortunate tea lady.
It’s an advert that is firmly tongue in cheek, but the choice of bad guy is pretty impressive.
