Video: Lionel Messi Destroys Barcelona Team-Mate Gerard Pique With Nutmeg in Training

Gerard Pique seemed to be the butt of every joke during Barcelona’s training session on Friday.

The big defender was, quite simply, having a nightmare during a small possession exercise.

The rest of the squad ridiculed the Spanish stopper – who was playing the piggy-in-the-middle – after he failed in his attempts to pull off some trickery.

Meanwhile team-mate Lionel Messi very nearly ended the former Manchester United man’s professional career with the most ruthless of nutmegs.

And, as you can imagine, the rest of the side were in fits of laughter at Pique’s misfortune as Messi lapped up the plaudits from Brazil striker Neymar.

In all fairness, you have to feel some sympathy for the Barca defenders having to deal with the likes of Messi, Suarez and Neymar in training every day.

You can check out the humiliating incident at around 3.10 into the video below.
