Mexico City /
Lionel Messi is set to embrace English more than ever following his confirmed transfer to Major League Soccer (MLS) to play with Inter Miami, a team owned by David Beckham.
Despite being an international superstar, the Argentine footballer has faced difficulties with any language other than Spanish. He has shown little inclination to speak any language other than his native tongue, regardless of the frequency or manner in which he is asked.
A collection of videos compiled by a Twitter user demonstrates Messi’s reluctance to speak in languages other than Spanish.
In these videos, promotional materials for the teams Messi has played for feature his teammates speaking the respective languages, while Messi himself sticks to Spanish.
This tweet sparked both backlash and applause from followers, with many considering it a display of Messi’s love for his roots.
Messi Sets New Career Record with Fastest Goal

The Rosario-born footballer found the back of the net just 79 seconds into the game, contributing to Argentina’s 2-0 victory over the Australian team.
La Albiceleste, and particularly Messi himself, caused a frenzy in Beijing, where the friendly match took place.
