Molineux man reveals source of argument.
Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Karl Henry has revealed the reason between his heated exchange with Queens Park Rangers captain Joey Barton.
The two men argued at the end of QPR’s 3-0 win over Wolves and Barton continued the war of words after the game labelling Henry a “Sunday League player” and a ‘Mug”.
The Hoops skipper also claimed Henry went out to hurt people in order to make a name for himself.
The feud between the two started last season when Barton, then at Newcastle, came in from some strong tackles from the Wolves midfield enforcer.
Henry has wasted little time in firing back at Barton’s comments and reveals the tactics barton uses to wind up opponents.
“Joey Barton was telling everyone he is on 80-grand a week as usual,” Henry said. “That is him. He always does that during the game. Always.
“He riles a few people up when he says those things and tells everybody how great he is.
“It is just embarrassing really. If that is what he wants to do, he can carry on doing it but that is why a lot of people dislike him.
“He has tried to reinvent his image but it is probably the same old story.
“I know we had our battle last season. I don’t want to keep going over it.
“But (on Saturday) they were winning the match. There was no need for him to keep going on the way he does.”
