Leo Messi is doing great things in the US. The Argentine is one of the best players, and Inter Miami fans are delighted by the fact that they have the opportunity to watch Messi in their club. Leo Messi is a player who spent almost his entire career in Barcelona.

His departure to PSG turned out to be a not-so-great adventure. Leo did not stay long in Paris. The next destination turned out to be Inter Miami. Despite hopes for Messi's return to Barcelona, he chose Inter Miami, led by David Beckham.

While the financial aspect played a role, family preferences, particularly those of his wife Antonella, were significant. Messi has been in the U.S. for over three months, yet he mostly conducts interviews in Spanish. He can understand and read English but struggles with speaking.

Leo Messi and English

Messi occasionally uses English with teammates, but he typically converses in Spanish. His choice is influenced by the large Spanish-speaking population in Florida, where Miami is known as the "American capital of Latin America." In addition, it is impressive to hear that some players are learning Spanish in order to have the opportunity to communicate with Messi.

It is unbelievable how big a star Leo Messi is, and what kind of attention he attracts. The players are ready to adapt to him. Most fans, despite concerns about his English, continue to support Messi. His arrival in MLS set attendance records in 2023, underscoring the adoration of his fans.

The Argentine is still one of the best, regardless of the fact that he is 36 years old. Fans in the US are blown away by his performances. They haven't had the chance to watch such a player on the pitch until now. We will see if club owners in MLS will have the practice to continue to bring players like Messi. This would certainly raise the quality of the league and increase interest in soccer.
