Lionel Messi was chosen as best athlete of the year by Time (the first footballer to receive the recognition) and now the expectations are placed on what will be his first full season In the USA they are very big. Now, some time ago, the top winner of the Ballon d'Or (8) had received contempt from one of the league's figures who, apparently, felt a certain jealousy of all the commotion that Messi was generating. This is the Mexican forward of Los Angeles FC, Carlos Vela.

"No, the truth is that for me being able to play, being healthy, available for my team, is my motivation. It doesn't matter who plays against me or who I'm going to do something against," were the Mexican's words when asked if he I was excited about the possibility of facing Lionel in the MLS. However, not satisfied with this, later in another interview he stated: “He comes from so many years playing in Europe with Barcelona and PSG… the players from those teams served him everything on a silver platter and he just had to finish the job. In the MLS we have to do a little more.”

Finally, when they faced each other, Inter Miami beat Los Angeles FC 3-1 with Carlos Vela on the field and away. In that match, Messi gave two assists and left a portrait of the Mexican attacker after his words. Now, the Cancún native suffered karma again.

Los Angeles managed to qualify for the Playoffs and reached the final, but ended up losing 2-1 against Columbus Crew with Vela among the starters. The Mexican could not contribute to the scoreboard and if that were not enough, he received a yellow card.
