Luis de la Fuente, the coach of the Spanish national team, recently shared his thoughts on the incredible Lionel Messi, expressing his deep admiration and desire to have Messi on his team. Although he may not personally regard Messi as the greatest player of all time (GOAT), de la Fuente recognizes the immense talent and considers him an ideal addition to his team.
De la Fuente has expressed his belief that Messi, who is currently 36 years old and playing for Inter Miami in the MLS, could bring an immense boost to Spain if he were to join their national team. This speculative scenario arises from Messi’s eligibility to represent Spain based on his great-grandfather’s roots in Balaguer, Catalonia. It’s intriguing to ponder the thought of how Spain’s fortunes in the late 2000s might have been even more formidable with Messi’s inclusion in their roster.
Messi’s future lies in playing for Inter Miami as the confirmation of his continued participation has been solidified. The month of January will witness an electrifying showdown between Inter Miami and Al Nassr, creating immense excitement among football enthusiasts. Fans are eagerly awaiting the collision of two powerhouses, with Messi, the illustrious recipient of the Ballon d’Or award on eight occasions, facing off against the renowned Portuguese sensation, Ronaldo.
