This Saturday the match between Inter Miami against Sporting Kansas City took place within MLS 2023, where it was the first match of Las Garzas without Lionel Messi after his arrival in July. Fortunately for those from Fort Lauderdale they achieved an important victory in their dreams of reaching the Playoffs and Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino remembered the ’10’ in a press conference.
Although they did not have Messi for this match, the Argentine technical director did not miss the opportunity to refer to the captain of Inter and the Argentine National Team: “It seems unwise for me to talk to another Leo (Scaloni) ) between games, they They’re on theirs and we’re on ours. Player Leo knows he has to deliver there and when he comes back he’ll do it here.
Regarding the great free kick goal with which the Albiceleste beat Ecuador, Martino stated: “What he did, instead of a Hollywood or Miami movie, was a movie in Buenos Aires. He remained the same in a shirt or otherwise, he did the same thing for 20 years (…) If he is on the field we will all be better, those inside, outside, and we will be able to win any kind of game. .”
The 60-year-old strategist also mentioned: “For a group of players who work hard and are teammates with the best in the world, if they don’t play, it’s comforting for them to know that they can win (… ) There is a standard Leo, we know the effort of the leaders, others enjoy it. He is the protagonist and we support the actors who enjoy it.
About the 2023 MLS Playoffs
Other statements from Martino are about the option to reach the Major League Soccer Playoffs: “Playing these types of matches is very important because it continues to put us in the race. If one has the possibility to accumulate with victories we will undoubtedly move up the table, we will look at it as appropriate. We have added 10 points from 12 but it is still a long way. We must continue.”
