Barton: Egos cost Marseille title

Marseille finished Ligue 1 as runners-up last season but Joey Barton has claimed the club could have done even better had its players not been so selfish.

Barton spent the 2012-13 campaign on loan at the Stade Velodrome from Queens Park Rangers, and helped them improve dramatically on their tenth-placed finish of the previous season as they clinched a much-needed return to the Champions League.

However, though he wants to return to OM on a permanent basis, the combative midfielder - typically - did not mince his words when it came to the performance of Elie Baup's squad.

"If we'd have had a better team spirit, and stopped being too individualistic and played more for the team, we would have won more matches," Barton, whose side finished 12 points behind champions Paris Saint-Germain, told caresteentrenous.com.

"There were quite a few times during the season when we played too much for ourselves and not for the others. Too much egotism. We should have been more disciplined, myself included. We finished second, which is good for a lot of people, but I said to myself we could have done better."
