From David could emphasize amount of sports stories and especially goals, but we focus on the least known of the Asturian side.
His first team was Langreo, rejected nine years by Real Oviedo. A injury in the femur of the right leg tenacity and extracted either by necessity or by avoiding rid of that love at first sight he felt for the ball from his earliest childhood, enhanced work left and became a ambidextrous player.
After leaving Barcelona in 2013 winning everything in this club, signed for Atletico Madrid getting the best season in club history, achieving La Liga and the Champions League final in Lisbon, lost to Real Madrid.
In total in this last season, David has played 36 league games, 7 Champions, 2 Copa del Rey and two Super Cup Spain. At 13 league goals, add one more in Cup and one in the Supercopa. Definitely a season to remember where Villa was the protagonist and has felt the affection of all the fans of Atletico.
On June 2, 2014 David Villa made official his move to New York City. Marks the beginning of his first adventure outside Spain to play in Major League Soccer in the United States. The New York City is a newly created team, founded in 2013 by Manchester City and the New York Yankees. A new challenge after 500 games in Spanish football spread between Sporting Gijon, Real Zaragoza, Valencia CF, FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
A new illusion for Spanish maximum scorer with 57 goals in 97 caps may be more due to a possible new call from Del Bosque.
Personally, note that David is a responsible and focused on their profession person. Speaking to it one is surprised fabulous vision that football and life. He is someone who knows what he wants and what to do at all times. Something very important has done is leave their previous teams leaving many friends behind. Fans have always been able to understand that his path should continue and we have never reprimanded for it.
