Luis Suarez has joined forces with Lionel Messi at Inter Miami and is setting ambitious goals for 2024, aiming for “four titles” to achieve complete domination.
The Herons secured a historic Leagues Cup title in 2023 shortly after Messi’s arrival in the United States, and they are committed to defending that crown. In addition to the Leagues Cup, Inter Miami has their sights on the CONCACAF Champions Cup and the U.S. Open Cup. Their aspirations also include a pursuit of MLS Cup glory, making a comprehensive campaign for four major titles.
Suarez sees no reason why a star-studded squad cannot compete for every honour up for grabs, with the veteran Uruguayan striker saying: “The best advice to give to the players is to dream and dream big. To dream that we want to win … why not dream to win the four titles? It depends on us. We can speak about it, but we have to demonstrate it on the pitch with work, commitment, sacrifice.”
Similar to Messi, Suarez is now 36 years old, approaching the conclusion of a distinguished playing career.
Ambition still burns brightly, though, with Suarez saying of his reasons for heading to Florida: “To come help a team that has well-known players that everyone knows and [adjust] to the other players and what is a new club and do what the club wants – which is to attempt to win an MLS Cup and do it with professionalism.”
Inter Miami will kick off their 2024 MLS campaign against Real Salt Lake on February 21. Before the regular season begins, they have several friendly matches lined up, including fixtures against El Salvador, FC Dallas, Vissel Kobe, and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr, as part of their pre-season schedule.
