Beckham explained how he found out that Lionel Messi had signed for his club Inter Miami, despite rumors and interest from both Barcelona and Saudi Arabia. Beckham is a part owner of Inter Miami and according to Goal.com, here is what Beckham had to say at the “Leadership Lessons” seminar:
“A couple of weeks ago, I woke up to about a million messages on my phone.
“I was thinking, ‘What’s gone off? I don’t usually get this many messages.’ All of a sudden, I hear Leo has come out and announced he’s coming to Miami. Obviously, it wasn’t a surprise to me.
“I have always said, from the word go, that if I had the opportunity to bring the best players in the game to Miami, at whatever time of their careers, I would do that. I have always made that commitment to our fans.
“So when I hear that one of the best players – if not the best player – who has won everything in the game, who is still a great player, still young and still doing what he’s doing, wants to play for my team, it’s a massive moment for us.”
