Messi was unveiled as an Inter Miami player on Sunday by David Beckham and the Inter Miami owners. He was presented after Sergio Busquets and spoke in Spanish. Here is a translation of what he had to say:
“I am very excited, very happy to be here, in Miami, with all of you. I am… I want to thank, obviously, Jorge, Jose, David, and their family, for the warm welcome and affection every day. For making us feel at home so quickly, making everything easy, the truth is that it has been spectacular for us since we arrived.
“I’m really looking forward to starting training, starting to compete. I come with the same eagerness I’ve always had to compete, to want to compete, to want to win, to want to help and to keep growing.
“I am very happy to have chosen to come to this city with my family. To have chosen this project. And I have no doubt that we will enjoy it a lot. We’ll have a good time and beautiful things will happen here. Thank you very much, thank you all for this day.”
Soak it in, Leo Messi.
