World superstar Lionel Messi will also have to get used to MLS, the North American soccer league. And that is expected to be David Beckham, co-owner of Messi’s new club, Inter Miami. “No matter how good he is, no matter how big he is, he and Sergio (Busquets) will certainly need time to adapt,” said the former England international.
In addition to Messi, Miami has also signed former Barcelona teammate Sergio Busquets. The third former Barcelona player joins Jordi Alba.
“They can surprise us, and we can start winning every game, but we have to be patient,” said Beckham, whose team currently ranks last in the Eastern Province.
Messi could make his League Cup debut on Friday against Mexico’s Cruz Azul. “We know he’s been out with his family for a couple of weeks but he’s looking fit, he’s looking good, but he’ll also need time to adjust,” Beckham said.
The Argentine world champions have moved to Miami after two unsatisfactory years at Paris Saint-Germain. The 36-year-old signed a two-and-a-half-year contract there.
