Via the New York Post, coach Gerardo “Tata” Martino has made remarkable statements around Lionel Messi.
Lionel Messi has agreed to join Inter Miami. At MLS , the 2022 World Cup champion receives a salary of 50 million euros per season. The Argentine superstar signed a 4-year contract.
Al Hilal offered a salary of 400 million euros per season, but could not receive a nod from Messi. According to L’Equipe, his wife Antonella Roccuzzo did not like the climate and life in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, Leo delayed going to the Middle East to play football.
Initially, Messi’s wife was also interested in returning to Barcelona. However, the Catalan club faced financial difficulties. Therefore, MLS is the best choice for a striker who has just turned 36 years old .
Messi receives many incentives on commercial contracts in the US. He will become the face of the tournament like David Beckham in 2007. In addition, Messi has the right to buy shares of an MLS club at a lower price than the market.
After recruiting Messi, Inter Miami also appointed coach Gerardo Martino. This position used to work with Messi in Barcelona and Argentina.
“When we talked to Leo, we talked about coming here to be successful, to compete and to do well,” he said .
This happens to us even on a personal level, we sometimes associate America, Miami for the holidays. Messi and us are not like that. We want to compete for titles.”
