However, the ultimate challenge lies in winning the MLS Cup, which requires overcoming a significant point deficit as Inter Miami currently sits eight points adrift of the playoff positions. Nevertheless, Messi’s presence alone instills hope and belief among fans and teammates alike.

In a recent interview with MLS Season Pass, following a brilliant performance in a 3-1 victory over LAFC, Messi expressed his determination to lead Inter Miami to MLS glory. He stated, “The group is growing more. I’ve been saying it since the beginning of all of this, we were lucky to get in a tournament and get to a final. Now, we’re going to look to hit the objective of being among the best eight to try and win the league. This is the way. We continue growing and obviously winning provides a lot of confidence.”

Lionel Messi’s impact on Inter Miami has been undeniable, with the team currently enjoying an impressive unbeaten streak of 11 games across all competitions since his arrival. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner is thrilled with the team’s progress and resilience, especially after a challenging fixture against the reigning MLS Cup champions. He commented, “We had spoken about it before the game, that it would be a good test for us to see where we really are and what we’re capable of. It was a difficult place to play on against a very good rival, the current champions. We walk away with a very important result for what’s coming.”

Inter Miami’s next test will come when they host Sporting Kansas City next Saturday evening. With nine more MLS fixtures remaining in the season, the team faces the formidable task of collecting enough points to secure a spot in the playoffs. Messi’s arrival has undoubtedly injected a sense of optimism and determination into the squad, and fans are eagerly anticipating what the future holds for their club.
