This comes after Inter Miami revealed its plans to bump up security ahead of Messi’s arrival given the massive influx of attention that the US soccer scene has attracted.
Owner Jorge Mas, who led the charge to get Messi to the States, said that security will be ‘obviously enhanced.’ Messi certainly lived up to the hype he generated, scoring nine goals in his first 6 games, pushing Inter Miami into the Leagues Cup final.
