Joey Barton has admitted that Liverpool’s victory over AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League final was "a nightmare".
The midfielder is currently on a season-long loan at French Ligue 1 giants Marseille from English Premier League outfit QPR and he is hopeful of enjoying a good stay on the south coast.
For Barton, it is hard to say, but he has been told it is the 1993 Champions League final between Marseille and AC Milan in Munich, which his current club won 1-0.
"The best I’ve seen? The fans say Munich. It is hard to choose just one, I love football and I watch a lot of it", Barton told Marseille’s official site.
"And the fans love to see goals, but I could pick other games because I like to watch tackling and the defence."
It was suggested to Barton that Liverpool’s 2005 Champions League victory over AC Milan, after being 3-0 behind, might be a contender, but the 30-year-old insisted for him it would not be.
"Oh no", said Barton.
"I am an Everton supporter.
"So for me, it is a nightmare."
Barton started his career in Everton’s youth system, but was ultimately given his professional bow by Manchester City in 2002.
