Why does Messi refuse to play some matches in the American League?

After a hot summer and a long race to obtain his services and eventually win him, American Inter Miami is facing a crisis after his new Argentine star, Lionel Messi, refused to play some matches in the local competition.

Seven months after leading Argentina to the World Cup in Qatar, Miami introduced their new player in a spectacular ceremony at the club’s stadium last Monday.

And the club’s Argentine coach, Gerardo “Tata” Martino, confirmed on Wednesday that he intends to push the newcomers, compatriot Lionel Messi and Spaniard Sergio Busquets, on Friday against the Mexican team Cruz Azul in the “League Cup”, during the tournament that brings together American and Mexican teams.

According to the “Daily Mirror” newspaper, the officials of the American team are on the verge of a new commercial crisis, as Messi does not want to play in artificial turf stadiums, and there are 6 league teams currently using artificial-surfaced stadiums, and it is certain that the Argentine’s absence represents a strong commercial blow to his club officials.

And former stars in America suffered from the same thing, as Beckham, who played for the Los Angeles Galaxy between 2007 and 2012, previously stated: As a professional athlete, you cannot play a game like football in this type of stadium. Your body may be damaged for three days after the match because of it.

Ibrahimovic, who wore the same team logo starting in the 2018-2019 season, revealed: Playing on artificial turf contributes to an increased risk of injury and damage to your feet.

Inter Miami has been suffering for several seasons in the American League, as its results were disappointing.

It remains without a victory in 11 matches, and on Saturday it suffered its fourteenth loss in 22 matches this season.
