Yohan Cabaye says Joey Barton has been as good as gold . in the changing room. Yohan Cabaye: "The welcome of the English players? It has been respectful, but they are waiting to see how you perform in a match. "Once you have shown what you can do, they embrace you. It is the same with the fans." "When I came here I had a lot of questions. "I am sat beside Joey Barton in the changing room and he was immediately nice with me, telling me that if I needed anything I just needed to ask. "On the pitch he is 100 per cent, like any English player. In training it can sometimes be tense, but he is always in a good frame of mind."
