Former Chelsea Player, Yossi Benayoun said his former QPR team-mate Barton will ‘stay stupid all his life’.
Yossi Benayoun has branded Joey Barton ‘stupid’ and ’embarrassing’ in response to a tweet he made about the Middle East crisis.
Benayoun, who played alongside Barton during on a loan spell at Queens Park Rangers last season, captained Maccabi Haifa team in their friendly against Lille in Austria earlier this week which was abandoned when pro- Palestinian protesters invaded the pitch and fought with players.
Barton replied: ‘Firstly, you cannot call somebody stupid with such bad grammar. Secondly, you cannot and should not kill innocent children. Thirdly, you cannot remove people from their land because a fictional book from thousands of years ago tells you can.
Last but not least, I hope you and your family are safe and well and remain so through this terrible time.’
Continuing with his posts, Barton added: ‘Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is impotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?’
