Joey Barton launched a bizarre, scathing attack on Everton boss David Unsworth

David Unsworth

Barton described current Everton caretaker boss Unsworth as nothing more than a "glorified PE teacher".

The boyhood Toffee, who is currently suspended from playing football due to a breach of gambling regulations, went on to add: “I used to watch him as an Evertonian and he was the most immobile left-back I've ever seen.

"He's not a manager, he doesn't look like one.

"How can you get players to exert themselves physically when you're out of shape?"

“I watched him waddling on to the coach. How can you get players to exert themselves physically when you're out of shape?"

The former Everton youth midfielder's comments preceded the Toffees' 2-0 loss to Leicester at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

Unsworth, when questioned about Barton's polemic rant, stated he "couldn't care less" about what the former Premier League man and one-time England international thought. 

Brave boy, Joey...
