Scaloni gives his opinion about Messi joining MLS side Inter Miami

Argentina’s World Cup-winning head coach, Lionel Scaloni, has spoken out in support of Lionel Messi’s move to MLS and the current standard of play in the league.

Scaloni, who manages Argentina’s national team, has taken a stance to back Messi’s choice to join MLS, as the player continues to make an impact with Inter Miami. Contrary to critics, Scaloni views Messi’s decision as reasonable, highlighting his consistent remarkable performances.

“I don’t think the level (in MLS) is bad,” Scaloni said. “On the contrary, I was at Inter Miami’s game versus Charlotte (FC) and I didn’t think it was bad. In fact the level was acceptable. Every football match is difficult. You have to play them,” he explained.

“There’s no doubt that (MLS) is a league that’s trending up. It’s improving and it’s attracting footballers to come and play here. It’s a country that’s also attractive. But I can see the challenges that MLS presents and I’ve seen good teams here. I know that this league is going to continue to improve. There are some very good players here and even better players will make their way here,” said the Argentine on the status of MLS.

After the conclusion of his contract with PSG, the 36-year-old Argentine captain relocated to Inter Miami during the summer. Despite rumors linking the former Barcelona player to a return to his previous club, such a transfer never materialized. Subsequently, he has managed to score nine goals across six matches for the MLS team.
