Unexpectedly, a member of Lionel Messi’s team at Inter Miami has turned down an offer to play in Europe. The Canadian athlete has chosen to remain with his current club instead of following the path of fellow countryman Alphonso Davies. While Davies left MLS to join a team in Europe, the Inter Miami player has decided to stay with his current MLS team.
The franchise owned by David Beckham has successfully persuaded the defender to sign a contract extension, which is a major advantage for the team. Many Inter Miami players have caught the attention of European teams, especially after Lionel Messi’s transfer to the franchise. However, it appears that some of these players would rather play alongside La Pulga.
The star player of Inter Miami selects Lionel Messi over pursuing a career in Europe.
Kamal Miller, a defender from Canada, is thoroughly enjoying his experience since joining Inter Miami. This season, he became teammates with soccer legend Lionel Messi, which is a dream come true for many players. Despite having the chance to play in Europe like his fellow Canadian Alphonso Davies, Miller has chosen to remain with Inter Miami.
Alphonso Davies started his career with MLS side Vancouver Whitecaps but moved over to German champions Bayern Munich, emerging as one of the top players for the side. In a recent interview with Franco Panizo, Miller touched on his aspirations and time with Inter Miami.
“I certainly agree. Many individuals from North America who have grown up aspire to go abroad and challenge themselves, and I am definitely one of those players. It is on my list of things to do, and if the chance arises, I would love to do so. However, I am currently content in Miami where everyone has welcomed me. If the opportunity arises to stay, I will gladly remain here.”
Kamal Miller selects Miami instead of Europe.
He was previously expected to become a free agent this upcoming winter, but has instead agreed to a contract that will run until 2026, with the possibility of a team option for 2027.
