MLS is one of the youngest soccer leagues in the world, but its newest star thinks it can become one of the biggest.

Inter Miami forward Lionel Messi, who’s taken MLS by storm after he left French powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain in June, said he believes MLS can become as popular as other European leagues like the English Premier League, La Liga and Ligue 1.

“I think it has every opportunity to do so,” Messi told ESPN’s Luis Miguel Echegaray Friday. “That growth depends a lot on the league. It’s an ideal moment to grow. There are important competitions upcoming that will be played in this country [like the 2024 Copa America and the 2026 FIFA World Cup].”

“It’s time for the league to make that leap and finish growing, finish looking for what it’s been seeking for a while,” Messi added. “Everything is in place here to witness top-level football because of the country, the structure, a bunch of things.”
