Lionel Messi is nobody to be scared of, Cruz Azul’s Erik Lira has come out to say. He recently revealed this ahead of the Argentine’s Inter Miami debut against the Mexican side, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, as far as he is concerned, Lionel Messi has 2 legs and 2 eyes like everyone else on the pitch, so he will just be another player.
Erik added that the tournament will be a new opportunity for his team to fight for a trophy.
His words, “As long as he has two legs and two eyes, he’s just another player. It’s a unique opportunity. It’s a new tournament, we have to fight for it,”
“But the truth is it’s just another game for us, [manager Ricardo] Ferretti tells us that Messi is just another player – obviously he’s a bit imposing, but we’re going to win.”
