JOEY Barton is right to say that Wayne Rooney has not fulfilled the immense potential he had at 18.

Barton said that Rooney had lagged behind his former Manchester United team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Rooney potentially, could have been world class," he told the BBC. "But why is Ronaldo a Ballon d'Or winner and Rooney isn't?"

Do you agree with Barton's comments?

Steven Seagull says...

Joey Barton is a gobsh1te of gargantuan proportions. He constantly talks from his bovril pipe and is an utter disgrace to professional football because of the way he has conducted himself throughout his career.

He's an out and out thug and nothing else.

So in summary who gives a toss what he says?
