Lionel Messi’s arrival at Inter Miami has been a phenomenon, already called ‘Messimanía’, which not even the most famous have been able to escape. Since its official presentation, on July 16, there has been an unprecedented phenomenon that has broken the barriers of soccer, in a country where this has not been considered favorite sport. Messi has even created his own hamburger inspired by one of his favorite foods: Milanese. This is the Messi Chicken Sandwich that will be found in all Hard Rock Café chains. Whether in Miami or Argentina, fans will be able to enjoy this burger. Messi also has his own mural, a smiling Messi, more than 20 meters high, is the work of the Argentine Maximiliano Bagnasco and is located in the Wynwood neighborhood in a building located at 148 NW 28 St. Messi’s arrival has also inspired restaurants, and even breweries like the local Prison Pals Brewing Co., which sells a beer with Messi’s number 10. The can is painted pink with black lettering, a replica of Inter Miami’s colors.
