Miami coach Tata Martino confirms Messi has an 'overload'

The 'Herons' defeated Nashville with a goal and an assist from the No. 10, who set up Luis Suarez.

"We tried to see if he could hold on a bit longer, but it was bothering him and so we preferred to take him out of the game," Martino said at the post-match press conference at Chase Stadium.

Leo Messi and Uruguay's Luis Suarez each had a goal and an assist in Inter Miami's 3-1 win over Nashville that gave Martino's men a ticket to the quarter-finals of the CONCACAF Champions Cup. Tata reported that he does not know the extent of Messi's injury, but expects the Argentine to be out against DC United.

"I don't want to take any risks, but I imagine he won't be available for Saturday's game. That's the only thing I can say in terms of what's to come" he said.
