With the appearance of Lionel Messi, Inter Miami transformed with the Leagues Cup championship, participated in the US Open final and still has a chance to enter the MLS playoffs.
El Pulga is truly flourishing in the US, but according to Westwood – who left Burnley to join Charlotte FC in January, the Argentine superstar will have difficulty without the strong support from Sergio Busquets.
“The whole thing that Messi brings to MLS has been incredible, I’ve played against some phenomenal players in the Premier League, but even at 36 years old, Messi is still the greatest player I’ve ever played against . Sergio Busquets in midfield is the same, he sees things that others don’t see.
Without Busquets, I think Messi will have a little more difficulty. Right now, Messi has Busquets in midfield, who finds him with every pass.
Playing with Messi is a real honor. He beat us in top form. Hopefully we can do that when we rematch Inter Miami,” Westwood commented.
According to ESPN, Messi did not travel with his teammates to Atlanta for the match taking place tomorrow morning (July 17). The Argentine superstar did not suffer any injuries, but Inter Miami’s Board of Directors decided to let El Pulga completely rest after the tiring journey back from the national team.
