Is David Beckham's Inter Miami the worst-run MLS team since Chivas USA's demise? | ESPN FC

When Major League Soccer announced Inter Miami as an expansion club for the 2020 season, the club’s owner, Manchester United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy legend David Beckham, promoted his vision of making Miami the marquee destination for world superstars making the move to North America. The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi were mentioned, but Beckham’s major signings from Europe in 2020 were former Juventus stars Gonzalo Higuain and Blaise Matuidi, which helped set up a roster compliance crisis ahead of the 2021 season. After missing the playoffs in 2020, Beckham replaced Diego Alonso with a new manager, his former Man United teammate Phil Neville, and the club’s big additions included a pair of players from the EFL Championship: longtime Stoke City defender Ryan Shawcross and former Arsenal and West Brom left back Kieran Gibbs.

0:00 ESPN FC’s Sebastian Salazar and Herculez Gomez discuss the top-to-bottom management of Inter Miami as it enters Year 2 in MLS and question whether a recent expansion team has been run as poorly since Chivas USA, which burst on the scene in Los Angeles with ambition in 2005 only to cease operations 10 years later.
0:42 Gomez runs through the litany of promises made by Beckham and Miami’s ownership team before the 2020 season and explains how they have failed to deliver on many of them.
2:08 Looking toward Miami’s first game of the 2021 season vs. LA Galaxy (Sunday, 3 p.m. ET, ABC), Gomez explains why Galaxy star Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez is in position to improve on his debut season by scoring at least 15 goals this time around.

  1. Beckham should get a world class players from Europe .Look at inter vs philadelphia,disaster in fouls.Youknow that tackle from behind is a no brainer foul and yet all the players are still kept on doing it.

  2. Again ESPN gossiping about nothing. How can you have any idea about management if it’s been only three months?!? Why don’t you talk about Beckham’s hair and his wife? That’s probably what you secretly want to talk about 🤣👎

  3. Funny how you never mention Zlatan and the Galaxy when he came here as a 4th DP. Maybe Becks forgot only one club can bend the rules. After all, he came here because only the Galaxy can offer a franchise to a player as payment. Keep sucking up to AEG, lads. Big smiles! Big smiles!

  4. i have no idea how you guys got jobs here. The levels of ignorance portrayed borders stupidity. Football has no place for opinions ,its a game based on skill, respect and collective humanity .I guess that is why ESPN isnt as respected in terms of football commentary and coverage. You two are a shame to the sport that puts food on your table. Good luck getting interviews from the players you just insulted.

  5. A lot of bitter jealousy towards Beckham from these losers. Btw Matuidi and Higuain are world class players retiring in US just any other genuine talent in the league. They aren’t coming to America in their prime, it’s a 3rd rate league. Also Neville has coached at Everton, Man Utd and Valencia and managed England’s women’s team. The MLS are lucky to have him. These “analysts” need to show some respect.
