In a shocking development, Inter Miami’s aspirations of clinching an MLS playoff berth have been shattered. Following their October 21st match, Inter Miami will be absent from MLS action until late February. This abrupt elimination from playoff contention has left fans disheartened while sparking intrigue regarding the impact of their marquee signing, Lionel Messi.
Messi’s arrival at Inter Miami brought an air of anticipation unlike anything the club had experienced before. His debut was a momentous occasion, fueling optimism within the team and its fan base. However, it is impossible to ignore the stark contrast in Inter Miami’s performance when Messi was on the pitch compared to his absence.
Out of the six games Messi missed, due to injuries or other reasons, Inter Miami could only secure a single victory. This statistic underscores the team’s reliance on the legendary forward. In stark contrast, when Messi graced the field for Inter Miami in 13 matches, they remarkably lost just once. This highlights Messi’s profound influence on the team’s fortunes, both as a playmaker and a goal scorer.
With Inter Miami’s playoff hopes dashed for the current season, all eyes are now on the future. The club’s management and coaching staff are expected to use the offseason to bolster the squad, aiming for a more consistent and successful campaign in the following year. The tantalizing prospect of Messi leading the team to glory will remain a focal point of discussion among fans and pundits as they eagerly await Inter Miami’s resurgence in the MLS.
