Spain’s David Villa on New York City FC move: “I want to help the MLS to grow” [Video]

David Villa has said that he chose to move to the MLS partially because he wants to help the league to grow.

The Spain striker is making the switch from Atletico Madrid to New York City FC and while Villa is used to being a team’s main man, at the minute he’s their only man!

But it’s quite a first signing for the budding club and Villa admits that leading the club was appealing: “More than anything I’m excited by the interest that have shown in me to be a figurehead for this project.”

Villa will first fly to the World Cup and then won’t play a competitive game for New York City FC for a couple of months!
