In the future, when we thumb through The Messi Effect book to read about the summer of 2023, there’s no doubt that Lionel Messi’s incredible achievements will be center stage. His signing with Inter Miami and winning the Leagues Cup helped generate record ticket sales and shirts sold. On the pitch, his remarkable goals for Inter Miami will be cherished by all who saw them.

Other soccer fans were upset too.

“Inter Miami has gotten this whole experience wrong from the get-go. The presentation should be for Messi AND the fans,…
