Video: Neymar completely takes out Barcelona coach during training session

When it comes to Barcelona training, Luis Enrique and his coaching staff can, at times, probably just sit back and watch as the star-studded first-team squad produce yet more footballing magic.

However, judging by one video doing the rounds this week, they might be wise not to get too close to the action if they want to be able to walk off the training ground at the end of the session.

That's after one unfortunate Barca coach was left prone on the ground after a coming together with none other than Neymar - a man who is usually the one on the receiving end when it comes to collisions.

The incident, captured in the funny but painful looking footage below, seems to have taken place during a Barcelona training session late last week.

With the squad in the middle of one of their famous rondos, Neymar only had eyes for the ball as he looked to keep the drill going. The poor coach never saw him coming...

One minute you're innocently counting yellow training bibs, the next you're left flat on your backside by a multi-million-pound footballing superstar. Such is the life of a Barcelona staff member.

We're not sure what is better; the fact Neymar seems totally oblivious to his coach's wellbeing as he chases down the football, or the reaction from Gerard Pique, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

Whilst the latter two stars can't help but smile after the collision, at least Pique goes to his coach's aid after a moment or two.

Although everyone appeared to find the funny side, it is unlikely there will be many smiles around Barcelona training this week after another disappointing result on Sunday.

No smiles

The La Liga powerhouse could only manage a 1-1 draw away to Real Sociedad and, in truth, could have lost the game had it not been for a generous offside call in their favour.

The result now means Barca are six points behind Real Madrid at the top of La Liga.

One positive to come out of the game, though, was the continued connection between Neymar and Messi. It was the Brazilian who's pacey run down the left flank set up Messi's equaliser.
