Jorge Mas, one of four co-owners, says Inter Miami are hoping to appoint a coach with an "attacking style".

"We are trying to get someone who can also commit here for a period of time and leave his fingerprints on our team," he said.

"it's someone you're going to know who has coached before at the highest level and who has played at the highest level."

Mas also expects an English presence within the MLS team and the franchise have already had some conversations with English players.

"I think you will see if you look at our young signings, we've made substantial investments in them," he added.

"We're going to couple them with players who have played in Europe who are very well known.

"We've looked at some English players. We're having some conversations with some English players and we anticipate Inter Miami will have some English presence."
