David Villa He announced his retirement from professional football on Wednesday and his figure has recently been in the spotlight. The Spaniard was the striker of the most glorious generation in the history of Spain and renowned member of Barcelona most successful ever. His career has been thoroughly reviewed in the hours and he has revealed what will be the moment he remembers most of his sports career.
“When the referee called the final in the World Cup,” the player said during an interview with Radio Brand revealing that it was the most important thing he has achieved. The forward showed no doubts regarding his election, since he stressed that “since childhood he dreamed of wearing the national team's shirt” and that he had “the luck of being born in the generation that managed to win it”.
The World Cup is the trophy craved by most soccer players. Villa puts the title won by Spain in South Africa 2010, where he was the top scorer of the tournament with Müller, to the historical achieved with the Atlético de Madrid in 2014 or the Champions League he won.
As if that were not enough, the player also recalled one of the most famous chapters of his life: when he could disembark in the Santiago Bernabeu. Villa recognized the contacts that the Valencia and the whites kept him “for many years”, although he pointed out that “he was never” a player of Real Madrid.
