LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – Lionel Messi won’t be on the field with Corentin Jean when he joins the MLS next month since striker tore his ACL while playing for Inter Miami.
Inter Miami’s season-long troubles were made worse by the injury that occurred during their match on Saturday, which resulted in a 3-1 loss for them.
The squad is now two points out of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with 12 losses out of its last 17 games.
Lionel Messi will now have to adjust to the squad without one of his possible striking partners after his contract with PSG expired and he made the announcement that he was moving to the MLS.
Inter Miami released a statement in which it acknowledged the seriousness of Jean’s injury and pledged their assistance for his rehabilitation.
The club’s problems are exacerbated by the loss of Corentin Jean, and David Beckham’s team is under even more pressure to turn things around.
Javier Morales, the club’s interim head coach, expressed his sorrow for Jean and gave him assurances of the team’s support throughout his recovery.
According to Morales, “We’re heartbroken for Coco, but we’re all with him on the path to recovery. We’re confident he’ll bounce back even stronger, and we’ll do everything we can to support him.“
The team has an uphill battle with Jean’s season-ending injury and Messi’s scheduled Inter Miami debut on July 21.
On June 24, they will play Philadelphia Union in their next league match, and they will be looking to pick up their first victory in the previous seven games.
