BRB, I Need to Bawl My Eyes Out
An announcement was issued stating that Inter Miami CF is scheduled to play in the Riyadh Season Cup. This is inaccurate. – Inter Miami
Fool me once; shame on you. Fool me twice; shame on me.
It started with Snoop Dogg making us believe he would quit smoking. And now, the hype surrounding Messi and Ronaldo returning to the pitch to face one another has been revealed as false promises.
Honestly, I don’t know who to believe anymore. I’m going to call my doctor and book some DNA sample tests because are my children even mine?

I spent precious time and energy yesterday hyping up soccer rumors that Inter Miami would participate in the Riyadh Season Cup. This event would’ve pitted the MLS side against Al Nassr, thus resulting in one last clash of the G.O.A.T.S between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The organizers of the Riyadh Season Cup announced that Inter Miami is anticipated to participate in the next three-team tournament.
“We look forward to welcoming everyone from Inter Miami in February for the Riyadh Season Cup,” commented Turki Alalshikh, the sh*t talker in question.
And so, the heartbreak flourishes.
The Miami organization disputed the accuracy of the announcement and asserted that it had been engaged in the process of deciding its preseason schedule. However, this didn’t stop UAE officials from gaining attention, as the anticipation of a confrontation between Messi and Ronaldo had already been promoted via soccer news in Saudi Arabia.
“Earlier today, an announcement was issued stating that Inter Miami CF is scheduled to play in the Riyadh Season Cup. This is inaccurate,” said Inter Miami CF Communications Department.
While it hasn’t been confirmed as to why Mr. Alalshikh, chairman of the Saudi General Entertainment Authority, would crush out souls like this, the MLS side is planning an international tour, and one can only hope that the buzz generated from yesterday’s false statement can somehow bring the two footballing icons together for one last dance.
Please, pretty please…
