After violent storms over Miami delayed his official presentation by an hour, Argentinian champions Lionel Messi was greeted by thousands of fans of his new team in the Florida city. On stage, the soccer star presented his new number 10 shirt to the audience along with his wife Antonella, who was wearing a pink suit in the color of Inter Miami. The world champions should have held a press conference today but the club have decided to cancel it without giving any reason.
Messi could make his debut in the new League Cup on Friday against Mexican club Cruz Azul. However, on Saturday, Inter Miami’s new Argentina coach Gerardo Martino called for “patience”. We look to the future with hope that the best player in the world will play for our team, but also with the patience we must have for him to get into good physical condition and play at the right moment.”
