Guardiola 'Villa was humble enough to adapt to Barça' >> Read My Mind


Guardiola: 'Thanks to Villa, we are able to play such good football –he’s had to adapt to the team and the coaches here and he’s had the humility to do that'

Guardiola: 'Thanks to Villa, we are able to play such good football –he’s had to adapt to the team and the coaches here and he’s had the humility to do that. Others wouldn’t have done it after all the things he had achieved'

David Villa 'When I retire, I will be able to say I played with Messi'


- I couldn't agree with Pep more. Before even setting foot in the Camp Nou, El Guaje already had 389 professional matches for 3 different teams (Sporting Gijon, Zaragoza and Valencia), scoring 210 matches in the process. He was a European and World Champion for Spain and rejected offers from Chelsea, Real Madrid and many others to join Guardiola's Barça project.

In his position, others wouldn't have accepted a 'secondary' role supporting Leo Messi or would have caused a massive argument when not being played as the main striker (Zlatan 'Diva' Ibrahimovic style)

DAVID VILLA: A WORLDCLASS STRIKER WHO WORKS FOR THE TEAM, NOT HIMSELF!!!!!!
