New Inter Miami signing, Facundo Farias has come out to say that he identifies more with Neymar than fellow Argentine and club team-mate, Lionel Messi. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, even if Messi is an idol for all Argentines, he fancies the Brazilian more because he considers herself an aggressive midfielder who likes going forward.
Facundo added that joining the MLS was strictly a personal decision for him, and it had nothing to do with Messi‘s influence.
His words, “I am an aggressive midfielder, front, always forward. I identify with Neymar. I don’t identify with Leo, but he is the idol of all Argentines,”
On playing for Inter Miami, “I watched games, the team [Inter Miami] is very good. I feel comfortable on the whole attacking front, I’m available wherever Tata wants to put me and I can’t wait to play my first minutes.”
“This is a very nice league, being in America is very nice. That Facu comes is also a motivation and I am happy for the project. Leo influences a lot but it is a more personal decision. We know the league is going to grow. I was seeing my teammates, I knew that several Argentines had come here. Leo asked us how we were and we already have our heads here, we have already changed clubs. I am available wherever Tata needs me. From central I’ve been doing very well.”
