Joey Barton's funny Twitter reaction to Chelsea's elimination

The QPR midfielder posted a picture of a broken bus after the Blues were knocked out of the Champions League by Atletico Madrid.

Chelsea crashed out of the Champions League at the hands of Atletico Madrid last night, with the Spaniards recording a 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge to progress to the competition final.

Many fans of other English clubs have been sticking the boot in after the result – with some players also getting in on the act.

Jose Mourinho’s side have been criticised of late for ‘parking the bus’ after a number of defensive away performances.

Joey Barton, who is one never to shy away from what he thinks, revealed that the bus may well have broken down after the Blues’ exit.


Barton went on to state that he felt that the better team progressed and had little sympathy for the west London club’s plight.


Atletico will go on to face cross-town rivals Real Madrid in the final.
