Lionel Messi has returned to the United States after completing international duty with Argentina, and is now under fire for his choice of pizza.
- Messi returns to Miami
- Drag to choose pizza
- Unlikely to play this weekend
What happened? It looks like the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner may miss Inter Miami’s away match against Atlanta United at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The rumors spread after Messi posted a story on his Instagram account about a horrible looking pizza from Bancheros Miami. The Argentine now needs to be dragged by fans to choose him for dinner.
The bigger picture: The World Cup winner has had a busy couple of months so far after helping Miami win the League Cup and also leading them to the US Open Cup final. Messi has collected 16 goal contributions in 11 appearances for the Herons.
What then? Miami will face Atlanta United at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Saturday evening, and Messi will likely not participate.
