Barcelona found themselves embroiled in another end-to-end barnstormer of a match in La Liga last night, and it seems the commotion was a little too much for one journalist - who fell asleep during the post-match press conference.

Lionel Messi scored twice as Barca ran out 4-2 winners against a stubborn Valencia side to stay in touch with Real Madrid at the top of the table.

The Catalans remain two points off Real who have a game in hand.

But as Enrique emerged from the dressing room to meet the press afterwards, he was faced with a problem he'd never encountered previously during his coaching career - a journalist sleeping like a baby.

As he was dissecting the Valencia encounter, he suddenly stopped to point out the sleeping journo before greeting him once he woke up.

I guess, the only fair thing to do was to wake the poor guy up:

To be fair, some of those media conferences can be a real drag, but falling asleep? He's lucky the other journalists in the room didn't attempt some sort of prank on him!

With Enrique soon departing Barcelona in the summer, he won't need to worry about boring journos to sleep much longer.
