MLS: Messi facing punishment after Inter Miami’s 2-0 win over New York Bulls

Inter Miami superstar, Lionel Messi, may face punishment following his MLS debut for the club.

Messi scored the second goal as they beat New York Bulls 2-0 on Saturday night.

But the World Cup winner did not speak with reporters after that game.

The 36-year-old could now find himself in hot water as a result, with MLS rules dictating that players have to be made available for interview at the end of games.

The division’s executive vice president of communications, Dan Courtemanche, had confirmed as much prior to a ball being kicked in New York.

But Miami spokeswoman Molly Dreska revealed after the game that Messi would not be facing the press, which leaves him in violation of MLS regulations.
