Villa calls time on New York City
- Former Spain striker David Villa confirmed his departure from New York City FC on Wednesday, drawing a line under a successful four-year spell with the Major League Soccer outfit.
The 36-year-old forward, who scored 80 goals in 124 appearances for New York, confirmed his exit on the club's website.
An announcement over his next playing destination will be made in
the ‘coming days.’ "I can only say thank you, thank you to everybody," the Spanish World Cup winner said.
"I would have liked to give the supporters the MLS Cup, but I don't have any doubts that in the next years the Club will get it for sure.
"My experience here was amazing. It gave me everything as a soccer player, as a person, and as a family man."
