Lionel Messi has “no doubt” Inter Miami will secure more silverware after he extended his record for Ballon d’Or wins.

The 36-year-old Argentina forward was named the world’s best player for an eighth time last month, after helping his country win the 2022 World Cup.

He left Paris St-Germain to join Miami in July and the MLS club won its first trophy in August – the Leagues Cup.

“We are going to continue enjoying and winning titles,” said Messi.

“I hope you accompany us as you accompanied us all these months that I’ve been here.”

Messi was speaking before playing his first game back in Miami, a friendly against New York City to close the 2023 US season.

The club celebrated Messi’s achievement by branding the game the ‘Noche d’Or’, holding a special ceremony on the field at DRV PNK Stadium.

“I had no doubt that we were going to have a good time, that we were going to enjoy it,” added the four-time Champions League winner.

“Today I have no doubt, as I didn’t at the beginning, and much less now, that next year is going to be a lot better.”
