Martino started working in Miami while waiting for Messi

While awaiting the arrival and presentation of Lionel Messi, Argentine coach Gerardo Martino led his first training session at the head of the Inter Miami squad on Monday. Eleven days after his official presentation as the new technical director, the DT from Rosario took over the squad, replacing his compatriot Javier Morales, who acted as interim after the departure of Phil Neville.

“Tata” Martino gave a press conference before the first practice and was “optimistic” about the future of the team, despite the fact that it is in last position in the Eastern Conference of the United States MLS.

“We have to make an evaluation based on what we see and based on what can happen. When one observes what can happen, that needs training and that will take us a little time. But from what I see and for what is being worked out of the field, I am very optimistic”, expressed the former technical director of the Argentine team.

Asked about the arrival of Lionel Messi, who would arrive between tomorrow and Wednesday, Martino was prudent and preferred to wait. “It is a somewhat difficult answer because there are things to be resolved here. Giving it a proper name is uncomfortable for me. Let’s hope that the announcements are made and when people are here we can tell them, in a more accurate way, how the future continues,” he explained. the technician.

In this sense, the DT, who was presented on June 29, explained that the last time he spoke with Messi was in Rosario as part of Maximiliano Rodríguez’s farewell at the Newell’s stadium, the Argentine club that identifies them as the three. Then, the captain of the Argentine world champion team went on vacation with his family to the Bahamas and has not yet returned.

Beyond the arrival of Messi and other eventual reinforcements, Martino’s debut will be next Saturday, when Inter visits St. Louis City in Missouri, after having watched three games from the stands. “What I observe is that the team plays the games well. Beyond what it will be in a month, I see that it shows a good face,” said the DT who led Mexico in the last World Cup.

Meanwhile, Messi’s possible debut is scheduled for July 21 against Cruz Azul for the Leagues Cup at the DRV PNK Stadium. The other option is on July 25, on the same stage and for the tournament that unites the MLS and Mexican soccer teams, against Atlanta United, a team led by Martino.
