8th July, 2013 was a sad day for me, my favorite player in Barcelona David Villa(El Guaje) was sold to Atlético Madrid after playing for Barcelona FC for 3 seasons. Before he was signed, I knew him as a winger for Valencia FC and the Spanish National team. I was very excited when I heard Guardiola was going to sign him. Then he won the World Cup in South Africa, the excitement was too much.
He was a great buy, I always remember his signature goals on that dangerous left foot of his. His goals against Real Madrid in the 5 nil whipping and his goal in the 3-1 win over Manchester United in the UEFA champions league final. He was doing very well till he started getting injured then the major injury came in the Fifa World Club Cup competition. He slowly lost his spot in the starting 11 and truth be told, Barca is a winning club, its a little difficult dealing with players who aren’t consistent. The injuries made him inconsistent. We saw less and less of him till the day I heard, he had been sold. I knew it was coming but it was still very heartbreaking. Oh, and that his goal against AC Milan *sigh*.
I will always love you El Guaje, David 7 Villa. Wishing you all the best.
