Mitja Ilenič and teammates in 95th minute without a scalp from the club with the best player: A young Slovenian on the bench, Lionel Messi even in the stands
Inter Miami and Inter Milan play in MLS on Saturday night and Sunday. New York City FC. The New Yorkers remained undefeated for the sixth time in a row, but this time they will long regret what they wasted. Mitja Ilenič and his teammates had a win in their pocket against the club to which Lionel Messi had recently transferred, but were without one in 95 minute into the game!
Only 18-year-old Mitja Ilenič didn’t get a chance to play, sitting on the substitutes’ bench. Even worse for Lionel Messi, who even had to go to the stands. But not because of the coach’s decision, but because of the injury that is plaguing him. Messi has missed four of Inter’s last five games, and it is interesting to note that Inter is keeping quiet about the Argentine’s injury. Even before the visit of the guests from New York, Florida said that Messi might play, even though they knew in advance that this would not be the case.
Inter, of course, does this for the sake of the visit. People go to Inter games mainly for the former Barcelona star, but if it was known in advance that Lionel Messi would not play… It’s all clear, isn’t it?
Anyway, the match ended in a 1-1 draw and Mitja Ilenič, who transferred to MLS from Domžale at the beginning of the year, remains on 21 league games played this season. He is still waiting for a goal, and has two assists.
