(VIDEO) Messi explains and apologizes to China for not playing the friendly

Finally Lionel Messi explains what really happened in the friendly match in China.

Inter Miami is just two days away from officially starting Major League Soccer. Although there is a lot of hype in the Florida team for the start of it, apparently there is an unfinished business between Lionel Messi and the people in China.

Inter Miami played a series of friendly matches around the world, and one of them was in China. In the Asian country there was a lot of excitement to see the Argentine, which is why 40,000 stadium tickets were sold. However, Lionel Messi did not manage to play a single minute due to injury.

In China they didn’t take it well, because they didn’t like that Lionel Messi didn’t play for even a minute and also, he didn’t go down to the field to greet the people. In China, criticism is pouring in towards David Beckham and Lionel Messi, which is why Lionel has had to come out with a video to explain what really happened and thus avoid creating more controversy.

Some of Lionel Messi’s words:

“As everyone knows I always want to play, I heard that I had not wanted to play due to political issues and many of those things that have nothing to do with it. If that had been the case, I would not have traveled to Japan or gone to China as I did on different occasions. since I started my career. I have always had a very close relationship with China, I have always done things like interviews, games, events and many matches with both Barcelona and the National Team.”
