Pundit reveals why Messi is succeeding at MLS


Football pundit, Andrew Wiebe has explained why Lionel Messi is doing greatly at the Major League Soccer, MLS.

According to him, defenders do not take on the Argentine superstar.

The talisman has been in scorching form this season, scoring 12 goals and providing 11 assists across competitions for Inter Miami.

It appears the Argentine talisman is breaking records every time he steps onto the pitch in the MLS.

Messi contributed 6 goals when Inter Miami beat the NY Red Bulls, 6-2 during their last game (1 goal and 5 assists)

Talking at the MLS Wrap-Up, Andrew Wiebe claimed that defenders are simply too afraid to embarrass themselves by taking on Lionel Messi.

Wiebe said: “It’s the fear. Nobody wants to close in on Messi, no one wants to get embarrassed, but then all of a sudden he sits, he waits, he finds the angle, and that’s a connection [with Suarez] we have seen hundreds of times.”

The last time a team had the guts to physically tackle Messi was when Inter Miami faced CF Monterrey in the CONCACAF Champions Cup.

The physicality of the opponents broke the back of Inter Miami’s attack, and Monterrey won 5-2 over two legs.
