American Inter Miami announced that Lionel Messi received the club’s best player award for the 2023 season, although he joined the team in June last year after leaving French club Paris Saint-Germain.
Argentinean Messi added another honor to his impressive list of honors in 2023, which included numerous individual and team titles.
Messi has 11 goals and 8 assists in his first 14 games for Florida State.
In his short spell at Inter Miami, Messi was able to lead the club owned by Manchester United legend David Beckham to win the first title of his career after winning the 2023 American League Cup.

Messi is the most famous player to receive this award from Inter Miami, having been preceded by the likes of his compatriot Gonzalo Higuain and Scotsman Lewis Morgan.
Messi was unable to lead Inter Miami to the qualifying stage for the 2023 American League title after missing most of the season’s matches due to injury.
