David Villa

Posted by in Football News

In June 2014 David Villa joined the New York City FC. Nobody could predict he’d leave such a significant impact on New York and MLS. Today, he is a standout amongst most prominent European stars to take his footballing talent to the United States of America.  As of late, after four amazing seasons, including MVP- campaign win in 2016, David declared that he is leaving the league and the country to begin the following statement of his playing profession.  The news comes post 1 year of David announcing his retirement from international football back in August 2017.

Villa will be joining companion Andres Iniesta in Japan and will now be the striker of the Japanese club Vissel Kobe and the Spain National team. After this, the Spaniard posted an emotional and heart-warming goodbye to New York City, his club and all his fans from America. New York appears to have left a significant effect on David Villa and his family. David Villa tweeted about this new transformation of his life in a series of adorable photos of his whole family. The striker beautifully conveyed how much he enjoyed his time in the city and promised in his own words “This isn’t a farewell”.  He said that he and his family will come back soon and that they love New York.

In all Villa scored 80 objectives in 124 games in MLS, leading the team in scoring amid each of the four of his seasons. The number of goals he scored in 2016 is 23 and in 2017 the goals count up to 2014. It is his most prominent performance. The league’s best player is known to be El Guaje. He is also the club’s best player to have ever been signed. He gave more than what was expected when he came from Atletico Madrid. The Spanish World Cup winner has left such an eternal impact on NYCFC and will be missed dearly. New York will cherish you forever David. Thank you for the memories.
