Messi’s absence infuriates Hong Kong government: fans paid 900 euros for tickets to… nothing – International

Inter Miami’s tour in Hong Kong has caused a lot of controversy. At issue is the absence of Lionel Messi during the North Americans’ 4-1 victory against a selection of players from the local championship. Consequently, the 38 thousand fans in the stadium, who paid around 900 euros for the ticket, began to boo the Argentine star and David Beckham, owner of Inter Miami. Furthermore, Luis Suárez was also on the bench and the fans’ anger increased. “We understand that many fans are very disappointed and we ask for their forgiveness. We would have liked to have sent Leo and Luis to play at least a little, but the risk was too great”, said Gerardo Martino, coach of the Miami team. The Hong Kong Government demands explanations. “The Government, like the fans, is very disappointed with the organizer, who owes everyone an explanation”, it is possible to read in a statement that reveals that the local executive paid around 1.7 million euros in support to the event’s promoter. Inter Miami will continue the Asian tour, with a duel against Vissel Kobe, on Wednesday. By Record
