Published Add your comment

If you have Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar in your side, you’d think that you would take it easy on them in training.

You certainly wouldn’t want to be responsible for injuring them during a session meaning they would miss some upcoming fixtures.

However, it seems the Barcelona players have no interest in giving their star trio a comfortable ride.

With Messi making his return to full training after an injury layoff, and Neymar and Suarez returning from international duty in South America, you’d think that a nice and easy session was in order.

Instead, the three stars were put in the middle of a rondo - where the players stand in a circle and try to keep the ball away from their teammates.

‘MSN’ could be seen diving in, desperately trying to win the ball back but they couldn’t quite get a precious touch on the ball.

As the passes increased, so did their desperation to win the ball back as they knew there was a punishment if a certain amount of passes were achieved - we think it’s 25.

However, despite the three superstars diving into tackles, they couldn’t quite get intercept any passes - much to the delight of the rest of the team as they were now able to inflict some pain.

The punishment?

The three players had to run through a tunnel made by the other players as they kicked and hit them by losing the rondo.

Take a look at the funny video below:

While it looks like it’s all fun and games in training, Barcelona need ‘MSN’ to perform on the pitch to make up for their disappointing start to the season.

The Catalan club have only won four from their first seven La Liga matches and are already two points behind both Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid.

However, with ’MSN’ all returning to full fitness, it won’t be long before Barcelona are firing on all cylinders once again.
