Lionel Messi’s transition to American soccer has been nothing short of astonishing, as the Argentine maestro continues to mesmerise fans with his unparalleled skills and charisma. “Already incredible” is how Lionel Scaloni, Argentina’s World Cup-winning coach, described Messi’s impact on Inter Miami, where the legendary player has made an immediate mark.
The decision to move to the United States was met with raised eyebrows, but Messi has swiftly silenced any doubts with his exceptional performance. In just nine games, he has netted an astounding 11 goals, propelling his team to an impressive run of nine consecutive victories. Beyond the statistics, what’s most heartening is the sight of Messi playing with unbridled joy on the field once again, after facing challenges during his stint at Paris Saint-Germain.
Recently, Messi secured his 44th trophy by clinching the Leagues Cup, adding to his already illustrious collection. Scaloni’s joy is palpable as he observes the 36-year-old icon radiating happiness, both for himself and his family. Speaking to the AFA’s official media, Scaloni said, “His presence is already incredible and both his team-mates and opponents generate something special. His presence is already too much and I think he is still more than qualified to keep playing football.”
As Messi leads Inter Miami to the U.S. Open Cup final and helps the team regain momentum in MLS matches, the investment made by David Beckham and the club’s board is bearing fruit. Beyond the goals and victories, Messi’s arrival has reignited enthusiasm for soccer across the country, drawing spectators to the matches and captivating fans with his brilliance.
