Mbia fined over Barton tweet

8 May 2013 23:11

QPR have fined midfielder Stephane Mbia following comments made on his Twitter account hinting that he may be keen to rejoin Marseille.

Mbia left the French club in August to move to Loftus Road in a deal that saw Joey Barton head in the opposite direction on a season-long loan deal.
The 26-year-old spent three years at Marseille and tweeted at Barton on Monday: "Do you want to rechange your seat with me?"

The tweet prompted an investigation by QPR officials and Ian Taylor, the club's head of media and communications, has revealed that disciplinary action has been taken against Mbia.

"The club has concluded its investigation following a series of tweets which appeared on Stephane Mbia's official Twitter account," tweeted Taylor.

"Stephane has stressed to the club that he is not responsible for the tweets.

"However, the club is of the view that every player that has a Twitter account is ultimately responsible for what appears on it

"As a result, Stephane has been fined and warned in relation to his future conduct. The club will be making no further comment."
