Lionel Messi and Inter Miami continue to shine in North America. The image of the herons, by the hand of “Leo”, Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and the DT Gerard Martino, managed to win the first title in its history and is preparing for a new fight for the cup. However, the Argentine strategist is starting to have some problems with his players’ physical abilities going forward.
The “Tata” led a total of nine games: seven for the League Cupone for MLS and another one for them US Open Cup. In this last competition, they qualified for the final after beating FC Cincinnati on penalties, losing much of the duel, but they managed to extend the game to later decide everything from the penalty spot.
After the game, Rosario’s coach spoke about his coaches. “Both ‘Leo’ (Messi) and many other players are reaching an important physical limit and from today we will evaluate how we approach the next three games,” he said at the press conference.
These statements worry the Argentina team as South America’s 2026 World Cup qualifiers begin on September 7 and the reigning world champions want their captain. Although the qualifier is still a few weeks away, Inter Miami still have three games to go before that date. These games are against New York RB, Nashville SC j Los Angeles F.C.
