Messi focuses on national team, reflects on MLS as ‘minor league’

Lionel Messi, the soccer maestro currently playing for Inter Miami in Major League Soccer (MLS), recently addressed his availability for the 2026 World Cup in an interview with Star+ in Argentina.

Messi’s primary focus remains supporting his national team, aiming to participate in next summer’s Copa America for Argentina.

In the interview, Messi highlighted his commitment to giving his best whenever possible, acknowledging the differences between leagues. He candidly referred to MLS as “a minor league,” emphasizing the importance of the approach and competition in determining one’s experience within a league.

Since joining Inter Miami in 2023, Messi made a remarkable impact, spearheading the team to a Leagues Cup championship and netting an impressive 11 goals in 14 games. His presence drew massive crowds, affirming his star power even in a different league landscape.

Despite Messi’s stellar performance, Inter Miami faced challenges during the season, culminating in a 9-7-18 record that resulted in them missing the MLS playoffs. Nonetheless, Messi’s influence on both his team and the league was evident, underscoring his ability to captivate audiences and make a mark irrespective of the competition’s level.
