VILLA ADMITS BEING LUCKY
David Villa has said that he has been lucky in front of goal and hopes that it continues in the future as well.The former Valencia hitman has failed to score in five games and has attracted criticism for squandering chances.
“I have not [had] much luck lately, but the positive is that every day I’m [making] chances,” the 29-year-old Spainish international said to AS.
‘El Guaje’, who is the all-time leading goalscorer for Spain, has scored 21 goals in all competitions for Barcelona this season, with 17 of those registered in La Liga.
Villa’s stats may appear impressive, but his goalscoring record is minor when compared to Blaugrana team-mate Lionel Messi, who has 42 goals in all competitions, and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, who has 37.
