Lionel Messi Provides Major Update on Soccer Future

Soccer superstar Lionel Messi, who’s currently playing for Inter Miami in the MLS, said on Wednesday that his current club will likely be his last. Messi told ESPN that there is “not a lot of time left” in his career, one that began an incredible 20 years ago.

Messi, 36, made his debut for FC Barcelona at 16 years old. He spent an incredible 17 seasons with Barcelona, where he scored 474 goals and 191 assists in La Liga play, and established himself as one of the greatest soccer players of all time.

Barcelona won 10 La Liga titles across Messi’s career, and they won Champions League four times, with Messi scoring 120 goals for Barcelona in the competition. After Barcelona, Messi left for Paris Saint-Germain, where he spent two seasons. PSG won Ligue 1 both years but failed to win a Champions League title.

In 2023, Messi, an eight-time Ballon d’Or winner, made a shocking move to the MLS to join Inter Miami. After appearing in just six games last year, Messi has appeared in 12 games this season and already has 12 goals and 10 assists. Inter Miami is currently in first place in the Eastern Conference.

“I’ve done this all of my life; I love playing ball. I enjoy the practices and the day-to-day, the games. Yeah, there’s a bit of fear that it’s all ending. It’s always there. It was a difficult step leaving Europe to come here,” Messi said. The fact we won the World Cup helped, it helped a lot, to see things in another way. But I try not to think about it. I try to enjoy it. I do that more now because I’m aware that there’s not a lot of time left. So I have a good time with the club, being lucky having good teammates and friends at my side.”

Messi has already established himself as one of the greatest soccer players ever and has made a serious case to be considered the greatest of all time. He’s accomplished everything there is to accomplish and has won at every level.
