We have a lot of time yet until the first game. We hope to be ready for the opener on the 6th of March. Right now it’s better for me, it is important for me. As captain of the team, the club, Patrick and my teammates need me to speak about some things. Right now I can communicate with them.” The captain of New York City FC, David Villa said.
David Villa has also talked about the hope that he has of getting called back to the Spanish national football team, as he has not played for his national side since the 2014 World Cup. Villa had already stated that he was going to retire from playing at the international stage when the previous World Cup reaches it’s end but the Spanish attacker now wants to get back and play with Spain, he is currently the all-time top-goal scorer of Spain after having scored a total of 59 goals but from the looks of it, Villa wants to continue adding more goals to his name.
