Lionel Messi celebrated as one of the greatest soccer players of all time, has added to his illustrious career by winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup and securing his eighth Ballon d’Or award.
David Beckham seems to share the view of Messi’s unparalleled greatness. In a social media post, Beckham humorously hinted at Messi being the greatest of all time (GOAT), where he posed with a baby goat, subtly referencing Messi.
Messi’s journey at Inter Miami, the club owned by Beckham, has been marked by success, most notably leading the team to victory in the Leagues Cup in 2023. His performance in the United States has contributed to the team’s achievements and impressed Beckham, a former Manchester United and Real Madrid winger.
Beckham’s Instagram post, with a playful nod to Messi as a ‘G.O.A.T’, garnered significant attention, receiving 960k likes and thousands of comments.
“Found a little friend in the country 🐑 And no HarperSeven sorry we can’t keep it we have enough G.O.A.Ts right now 🖤 @intermiamicf” Beckham captioned on Instagram
Despite a challenging season where Inter Miami finished 14th in the Eastern Conference of the MLS, Messi remains optimistic about the future. He expressed confidence in better results for the 2024 season and emphasized the importance of fan support and unity within the team.
Grateful for the warm reception in Miami, Messi highlighted the significance of winning the Leagues Cup as a foundation for future success, including participation in the Concacaf Champions Cup. Messi’s commitment to Inter Miami and his belief in the team’s potential underscore his role as a leader and an icon in the sport.
