Tata Martino, Inter Miami’s head coach, emphasizes the goal of beginning the pre-season with the entire squad. However, decisions on player participation will be influenced by physical assessments as the season progresses. Martino acknowledges the contractual obligation to include the best players but emphasizes the need for balance if the team faces an increased number of matches.

While facing Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr in the Riyadh Cup on February 1, Messi’s Inter Miami gears up for the MLS season opener against Real Salt Lake on February 21. The club remains focused on navigating the demanding schedule while ensuring the optimal performance of their star players.
