In an interview, Lionel Messi acknowledged that the Major League Soccer (MLS) is a “lesser” league than either La Liga with Barcelona or Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain.The Argentine discussed his future with the national team in an interview with StarPlus.com, acknowledging that the MLS schedule and the quality of the competition may have an impact on his playing level. However, he believes that the opportunity best fits him and his family at age 36.
Since joining the league in July, the Argentine has dominated Major League Soccer (MLS), taking home both the Leagues Cup and the Golden Boot. Even though MLS doesn’t have the same level of talent as Barcelona or PSG, it is still expanding along with the global game. Leading exports are being sent to Europe, and all of the teams that compete in the league are less visible due to the league’s Apple TV deal. Before the 2024 Copa America, he now vows to continue playing at a high level for his nation.
The erratic Argentinean stated: “I’ve stated it multiple times and it is true: I will always strive to compete to the best of my abilities and I am the first to know when I can and cannot be there. I know I played in a lower league, but a lot depends on the individual and how they deal with and compete. I’m going to [represent the national team] as long as I feel good and can keep on contributing.”
