Lionel Messi has made an incredible impact at Inter Miami since joining the club. In just four appearances, he has already become the joint-fourth highest goalscorer in the club’s history. Messi’s impressive performance includes scoring twice against FC Dallas in the Leagues Cup, helping his team secure a draw and advance to the quarter-finals through a penalty shootout.
With seven goals to his name, Messi is now on par with his teammate Josef Martinez, as well as former players Lewis Morgan and Rodolfo Pizarro. The only players ahead of him are Robert Taylor, who has scored eight goals, and Leo Campana, who has netted 16 since joining the club on loan last January.
The club’s all-time leading scorer is retired striker Gonzalo Higuain, who scored 29 goals in 70 appearances between 2020 and the end of the 2022 MLS season. Given Messi’s rapid goal-scoring rate, it won’t be long before he challenges Higuain’s record.
Messi’s goal-scoring prowess is well-known, as he scored an incredible 672 goals during his time at Barcelona. He also holds the record for the most goals scored for the Argentina national team, with 103 goals.
Messi will have the opportunity to surpass Robert Taylor’s goal tally in the upcoming Leagues Cup quarter-final match. His impact at Inter Miami has been nothing short of remarkable, and fans are excited to see what he will achieve in the future.
This week, Barcelona legend Lionel Messi joined Inter Miami as an ambassador. He recently made his MLS debut for the club in a goalless draw against LA Galaxy. Yet, despite just four appearances for Inter Miami, it seems the iconic Argentine’s impact on the club has already been profound.
After a remarkable performance against Philadelphia Union on May 8th, Messi scored a game-winning goal and assisted on two more, earning Inter Miami a 4-1 victory. This heroic outing not only lifted Inter Miami to third in the Eastern Conference table, but it also elevated Lionel Messi to become the fourth-highest goalscorer in the team’s short history. This remarkable feat has cemented Messi as not only a club ambassador, but also as an influential player for the future of Inter Miami.
Messi’s emergence as a true star for Inter Miami since his debut in March has been further enhanced by his professional behavior and his dedication to the team. Despite the brief amount of time he has spent with the team, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner has already become a fan favorite due to his extraordinary goalscoring ability and leadership.
Messi’s incredible achievements during his short time at Inter Miami have developed high expectations for the remainder of the season. With the South American superstar now at their side, it seems Inter Miami are positioned to become an MLS powerhouse in the years to come. With Messi having firmly established himself as the fourth-highest scorer in the club’s history, the future certainly looks bright.
