Inter Miami coach Phil Neville passed on signing Gareth Bale because the MLS expansion site are still in their “building block” phase. The coach felt that they are still in that foundation and assumed that Bale express himself in other clubs better.
Reports said Bale is being linked with Inter Miami but for former Real Madrid player and co-owner of Inter Miami David Beckham, this is not the time to bring Bale to MLS.
“At this moment in time, I feel as if we’re still in that foundation, building block phase,” Neville told reporters on why they had not gone in for Bale. “There will be times when we add the cherries and the icings on the cake.
“As much as it’s, yes, great on paper and all that business, we felt from a roster point of view, we felt from what we really wanted from this season. Neville said.
“[Bale] would enhance any football team, but we have a cap at this football club, we have a certain level of player that we think will improve us in certain areas. Good luck to Gareth in LAFC. I’m glad we don’t have to play them again. They are ahead of us in terms of what they’re building, but we’ll catch them.”
Inter Miami are probably looking for players who are eager to build their career along the way. Experienced players are welcome. Although The Heroes prefer establish players who are driven to start their new beginnings humbly.
“We are developing a real, real top-level recruitment department,” Neville added. “You look at the players that we’ve brought in this year.
“[They are] players that probably not many people have heard of, but players that are on our radar, players that we feel fit the characteristics of what we want. Which is hungry. We really want hungry players.”
