MLS Riot: Inter Miami brutally ripped apart by fans after making a decision that cost their woes financially…

According to reports, the coaches at Inter Miami are optimistic that Lionel Messi will be well enough to play against Vissel Kobe this coming week.

Due to an injury, Luis Suarez was also rested from the preseason friendly, and as a result, the captain of the Herons did not participate in any of the games over the weekend in Hong Kong.

While official government protests and David Beckham being jeered have been among the outraged responses to Messi’s absence from Sunday’s game, Inter Miami’s choice to rest the striker may prove to be a wise one.

With it being the final international friendly for Inter Miami in this mammoth pre-season tour, Messi potentially being fit would be a huge boost for Tata Martino’s side heading into the new MLS year.

And for supporters, Messi being cleared to play will be huge after Sunday’s no-show in Hong Kong, with more negative PR the last thing Inter Miami need this pre-season.

Lionel Messi playing for Inter Miami vs Vissel Kobe will be huge.

With Messi missing Inter Miami’s latest friendly, it shouldn’t be no real surprise that the Argentine international is now expected to feature against Vissel Kobe.

Yet given how little the forward has played in the last two fixtures, Messi returning to the pitch in some significant capacity would be viewed by many fans and pundits as a massive achievement.

As we know, Inter Miami will want to end their international pre-season with a bang with a big result against Vissel Kobe, with Messi seemingly eager to feature.

And the Inter Miami captain’s return will be a big morale boost for the Herons, especially with the MLS season slowly creeping up on us.
