Federico Redondo spoke about joining Inter Miami, Lionel Messi, the Olympics and Sergio Busquets.

Redondo joined Inter Miami from Argentinos Juniors and will be making his debut in the Concacaf Champions Cup against Nashville on Thursday. The 21 year old is the son of Argentina and Real Madrid legend, Fernando Redondo. Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, he was asked about his father. Here is what he had to say:

“I’d say I inherited his mentality and his personality. And well, every player is different and I know I’m going to make my own career.”

The Argentine was also asked about Lionel Messi.

“Obviously [Messi] carries a lot of weight. He’s the best player in history and sharing the field with him is a dream.”

When asked about fellow midfielder Sergio Busquets:

“Sergio is obviously a player I’ve always admired, especially because we share the same position. He’s always been a reference. It’ll be an honor to learn from him.”

About joining Inter Miami and where he will play:

“I’ll play where they need me. In Argentinos I played as a [six], a double [six], internally on the right, internally on the left. I feel comfortable in every position.”

“The truth is I’m available, physically I feel good and I hope to help as much as necessary.”

He was also asked about going to the Olympics or staying with Inter Miami:

“We haven’t talked about that yet. My head is here now, and when the time comes if they call me, we’ll talk about it then.”
