David Villa has ruled out a potential return to the Spanish league
Former Valencia and Barcelona striker David Villa has ruled out a potential return to the Spanish league by claiming that he is committed to his career with New York City FC.
The record goalscorer for the Spanish national team is currently playing with the MLS outfit having moved on a free transfer. The MLS season has just come to a close and it has been a decent start to the North American carrier for Villa. The forward scored 18 goals in 30 appearances for his club. Despite his goals, the club were unable to qualify for the play-offs but they would consider this to be a decent season.
It is the first MLS campaign that New York City FC are taking part in. They finished 12 points behind Toronto FC, who qualified for the final play-off place. New York City finished only seven points behind Orlando City, who are also a newlyformed MLS franchise. Now that the campaign has come to a close, there is speculation that Villa could return to the la Liga on a short-term loan deal like many other MLS stars. The new campaign does not begin until after a few months and it provides a great opportunity to keep such star names in the top-level.
“[On his debut season with NYCFC], I’m disappointed on a sporting level but very happy with the experience of living in the US and playing for a club like New York City and in a League with the potential of MLS.My time in La Liga has passed. [On Barcelona], last season, with the treble, was fantastic.Our objective was to be in the playoffs, so my  goals aren’t important. What was important was the collective and it must be acknowledged that the team didn’t do well enough,” said Villa.
