After playing for Argentina during the international break, Lionel Messi is scheduled to return to Inter Miami, and he is aware that a number of challenging games are ahead.
On September 16 at 17:00 EST, Atlanta United will be the first opponent, and on September 23 at 19:30 EST, Toronto FC will be the opponent. Inter Miami will play Orlando City on September 25 at 19:30 EST, and three days later, they will play Houston Dynamo at 20:30 EST.
It is evident that Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets’ additions have been crucial for David Beckham’s team as they strive to move up the MLS standings.
This is the reason why the need for more high-caliber athletes has come up recently. As a result, it appears that Messi may have authorized the acquisition of Riqui Puig, a Spanish player and longtime friend of the Argentine who is already playing in the MLS.
Puig left Barcelona as a free agent in 2022 and joined the LA Galaxy. In 42 games, he has 11 goals and 6 assists to his credit.
It is important to note that Inter Miami has improved tremendously since Messi joined the team, and they are currently six points out of the MLS Playoff places, which appeared nearly impossible before he did.
John Herdman has been officially named the new coach of MLS based club Toronto FC. Starting on October 1st, the 48-year-old will take over as Toronto FC’s next head coach in the MLS.
Herdman became the coach of Canada in January 2018 before leading the North American giants to the 2022 FIFA World Cup, their first appearance in 36 years.
“I’m keen to start this new opportunity with Toronto FC,” he said. “It’s the right time for a new challenge.” Toronto fired former head coach Bob Bradley in June and are currently towards the bottom of the MLS standings.
