When David Beckham took over as part-owner of Inter Miami, it’s fair to say that big things were expected.
One of the most recognizable faces in the sport would surely turn out to be the main attraction of a club that is starting to find its way into MLS.
Suffice to say, it has been a bit slow so far, however, over the past 12 months or so things have started to turn for the club.
Gonzalo Higuain and Blaise Matuidi have been signed as big names on the pitch, and Phil Neville has been installed as manager.
Obviously, it seemed like a team that was finally going.
Now, with the expected addition of seasoned West Bromwich Albion defender Kieran Gibbs, Inter can really start to think about putting themselves on the MLS card.
Gibbs, despite his excellence as a left-back role, clearly does not fit Sam Allardyce’s plans. A road style one isn’t the player’s bag either, so it’s no wonder he jumped at the chance to join the Beckham revolution according to Don Balon.
It’s another feather in the cap for Inter, and at just 30 years old Gibbs has a few more years in the game, so maybe MLS can start shedding the ‘retirement league’ nickname. ‘.
