Barcelona boss Luis Enrique had to pause during his post-match press conference on Sunday after noticing a journalist had fallen asleep.

The Spaniard was addressing the media in the wake of his team's 4-2 victory over Valencia at the Nou Camp and one member had clearly been exhausted by what was an end-to-end La Liga clash.

Enrique was discussing the visitors approach to the game when he stopped and said: 'Look, that's never happened to me, a guy sleeping in the press conference!'

'It's the first time,' the manager added, pointing at the man. 'I must have been very boring!'

'Good morning! How are you doing?' he asked the reporter, struggling to contain his amusement.

'I don't think I have any more to say!' he chuckled as the rest of the room broke out in fits of laughter.

And the former Spain international, clearly perplexed by the situation, had a hard time turning his attention back to the buisness at hand as he responded to the next question with: 'Wait, wait, now I can't!' 

'Damnit I know the boss' press conference is boring but this... well, let's try do this!' he laughed, as order was finally restored.

Fortunately for the journalist, Enrique was in a good mood after a brace from Lionel Messi and strikes from Luis Suarez and Andre Gomes had secured three crucial points for his side.
