David Villa leaves at the end of the year from the American league MLS. The 36-year-old Spaniard extended his contract with New York City FC. Bastian Schweinsteiger remains a season longer active in the US.
Villa was in June 2014, the first foreign acquisition of NYC FC. Since then, the 98-times Spanish international accounted for 80 goals in 124 matches. He was in 2017 even called once for the Spanish national team.
“This has been a great experience”, says the Villa on the website of the MLS. “It made me as a footballer, person and family man, much given. I will have these memories always cherish and me forever a supporter of NYC FC feel.”
