Joey Barton launches the new England kit via Twitter. D’oh!
FA bosses and no doubt Umbro bosses will probably be fuming this morning after Joey Barton launched the new England kit via Twitter!
New England kits are usually released after a carefully orchestrated photoshoot involving senior players, with images released to the media strictly embargoed until after the official launch.
Indeed, your very own OTP once received a cease and desist order when we received a leaked photo of a new England kit.
But any such plans have been blown this time after QPR midfielder Joey Barton took it upon himself to launch England’s Euro 2012 kit.
The one-cap wonder posted photos of the new kit on his Twitter account last night.
Barton tweeted: “Yes ok Stuart I will reconsider my international retirement only because you asked nicely #newengkit.”
We suspect Stuart Pearce has had a strict Barton embargo placed on him.
