Joey Barton also explained his comments, saying that technically, the game of football for men and women doesn’t have much difference.

Former English midfielder Joey Barton has found himself in a row after his comment on former English women’s team footballer and presenter Alex Scott has gone viral. Barton tweeted, “Women shouldn’t be talking with any kind of authority in the men’s game. Come on. Let’s be serious. It’s a completely different game. If you don’t accept that. We will always see things differently. The women’s game is thriving. Fantastic to see. I cannot take a thing they say seriously in the men’s arena.”

Later, Barton also explained his comments. He mentioned that technically, the game of football for men and women doesn’t have much difference. He then adds that when the physical aspect comes in, the difference becomes quite contrasting.

“Until you have experienced that. You cannot say what you would have done in said position at said time. No,” read his tweet. “You can say what you want. You will be qualified to. You have experience of what is taking place. The eunuchs might not agree. But somebody had to say something. Hate it having to be me…”

During her football career, Alex Scott achieved remarkable success, securing eight league titles, three WSL Cups, and seven FA Cups. She also claimed the Champions League once and two Community Shields.

Barton though claimed that she lacks the qualification to comment on men’s football. In a live session with British journalist Piers Morgan, he described the importance of a credible body of work regardless of background, stating, “I don’t care where you’re from or how many games you’ve played, but you have to have a body of work that is credible to get you there… the world has gone crazy.”

Barton’s comments weren’t taken positively and many sports personalities hit back. TalkSports’ presenter Laura Woods tweeted, “Usually avoid these conversations as I don’t like adding more oxygen. But throwing young vloggers to the wolves is wrong. I started my career vlogging & I’ve always got on with Joey. He also sent me a lovely good luck message for TNT in June. Does that make him a eunuch too?”

With the row taking an ugly turn, it needs to be seen how Joey Barton, who had spells with Manchester City and Newcastle United, responds.
