Joey Barton has announced that he is temporarily quitting Twitter to concentrate on his football.

The 30-year-old, who recently completed a loan move from Queens Park Rangers to French club Marseille, has been a source of controversy with his remarks on the social networking site.

"Ok, I am finished talking now. I won't be tweeting for a while. 3 blog posts on my website a week is all I will do," he tweeted.

"So if you want to keep with what is happening in France. How training is going, difference in culture/attitude etc.

"Need to get my head down and graft my way back. Lots of people to prove wrong. A lot to prove to myself. Thank you for all the kind wishes. Speak soon people xx"

Barton has over 1.5m followers on his Twitter account.
