Gerardol Martino, DT of Inter Miami, completely excluded Lionel Messi He appreciated that for the Sol Classic with Orlando City “Be aware that there are times when you need to stop” and said they will define their return “day by day.”
The coach commented on this in a press conference physical condition of Messi and Jordi Alba that “I read day after day with the topic of the old scar and Jordi with tiredness.”
After a day off, the Herons team began preparations for the game next Sunday at 8:30 p.m. ARG/URU/CHI, 6:30 p.m. COL/ECU/PER at Exploria Stadium, and the captain was not in the Group.
“Neither Alba nor he are considered for Sunday” Martino advanced.
“I haven’t spoken to Leo since the game, but it seems to me that his experience gives him the ability to know, even during a game, when to stop, when to say enough and when to take precautions.” And I think it’s very sensible for him to exercise it more than ever at this point in his career because we want to see Leo on the pitch a lot more and I need to help him. It’s good for me to realize that there are times when you have to stop,” the coach estimated after Leo asked for the substitution in the first half of the game against Toronto.
“That annoying scar, I don’t know if it hurts, maybe it’s something much more medical. I know that it is likely that mentally they will not allow him to play freely,” Martino commented on the problem his star is suffering, but it is not a new injury.
Regarding Messi’s possible replacement for Tata Facundo Farias That wouldn’t be ideal: “I actually think they complement each other very well. We’re looking for both of them to be midfielders because they play in different halves of the pitch.”
“In some games it is possible to play as a fake new player. We have alternatives for that.”
