Last Monday (07), according to the newspaper “The Sun”, the goalkeeper of Inter Miami, Nick Marsman, was fired for a comment made in the middle of an interview for ESPN, in which he referred to how it would be the organization of the team with the new signing of Lionel Messi.
“Personally, I think the club is not ready for Messi. We have a temporary stadium, people can enter the pitch, we go to the stadium without any security. I hope he comes, but they are not prepared”, said Nick Marsan, in the interview for ESPN, released in June.
However, the goalkeeper’s comment did not sit well with David Beckham, who owns the Major League Soccer franchise. After the decision of the former player and current businessman, the athlete received the severance pay and did not comment on last week’s event.
