Messi's revenge, the shocking thing Lionel did after Inter Miami's loss

Messi surprised football fans with his actions after the Inter Miami vs Monterrey game.

Lionel Messi was not happy after Inter Miami's loss against Monterrey.

Lionel Messi couldn't help Inter Miami once again as he is still fully recovering from his injury. It was a crucial game for Inter Miami as it was the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions Cup quarterfinals. Inter Miami took the lead early in the game, but Monterrey CF made a comeback to win 2-1 and have a great advantage ahead of the second leg next week. Before the Monterrey game, tensions were already high as a statement from the Monterrey coach put Inter Miami and Messi in a weird position. Monterrey's coach, Fernando Ortiz, spoke ahead of the game and made some controversial comments regarding Lionel Messi and Inter Miami.

Fernando Ortiz talked before the Inter Miami game, and he suggested that his team needed to play against Inter Miami, Lionel Messi, and outside of football. Ortiz said, "I hope the boys understand that he is just another rival, that he is just another player. Then comes the other thing: the referee, the framework, the people, the boy Lionel who is perhaps more aware of what happens to him and doesn't play as much. Everything that surrounds Messi can lead to him making sporting and extra-sporting decisions. Was I clear?"

Ortiz continued and said, "I'm concerned about the environment, obviously. I don't know if they can harm us, but the business is there. We all know that football is a business. We are going to beat him sportingly. Then I can't handle other things.” These words were remembered by Messi and he did not let that go away after the game yesterday.
