Owned by English soccer legend David Beckham, Inter Miami has struggled under the weight of expectations since it was founded in 2018. Two 10th place finishes in the Eastern Conference has left fans underwhelmed, especially after several high profile signings.
This season, the Florida-based side hopes a clearer transfer strategy and playing style will propel them towards the top half of the Eastern Conference and into the MLS playoffs.
Inter Miami: Major League Soccer, Style of Play
Since being appointed coach of Inter Miami in 2021, Phil Neville has struggled to bring success to the MLS club. As part of a hugely successful Manchester United side in the Sir Alex Ferguson era, Neville had a renowned playing career. But managing in the MLS is proving to be tougher than he expected.
Neville prefers a high press, possession-based style, with a flexible 3-5-2 formation. He may change things up this season, however, in order to get more pace and direct running in the final third.
Inter Miami Stats
- With only 36 scored in the 2021 season, Inter Miami finished with the joint lowest goals total in the Eastern Conference
- Those 36 goals were scored over 34 games, with a goals per game ratio of 1.06 goals per game
- Inter Miami had the fewest shot attempts and shots on goal in the entire MLS last season
- They also had the joint lowest total draws in the entire Eastern Conference season, with only 5
- Only Cincinnati suffered more home defeats than Inter Miami’s 8 last season
Inter Miami: MLS Standings & MLS Predictions this season
With league-imposed sanctions issued last season for defying MLS roster rules, Inter Miami’s team underwent significant changes in the off season. Now, with several key players taking on more responsibility, as well as lots of new young players looking to impress, Phil Neville’s side will be hoping to improve on last season’s poor showing – their second consecutive 10th finish in the Eastern Conference.
Big name striker Gonzalo Higuaín is key to Inter Miami and will need to find the net regularly if they are to improve performances. The Argentinian scored 12 goals in 30 appearances in the 2021 season. After a slow start to his MLS career, Higuaín will hope to be around the top of the scoring charts come the end of this season.
Meanwhile, new signings Leonardo Campana, on loan from Premier League Wolves, and Jean Mota, signed from Santos, will try to bring lots more flair and attacking threat.
