David Villa moved to the US to start a new adventure in New York when he signed as the first player ever for New York City FC. He has rapidly gotten used to living in a different city and to speaking a different language. He has scored important goals for his team as he has always done and he has found the time to make of New York his new home.
But before he became Spain’s top all-time goalscorer, a World Cup champion and the face of New York City FC, David Villa was just a kid from the small Spanish village of Tuilla. This is his story told by “The Players’ Tribune”, a new media platform, founded by former New York Yankees star Derek Jeter, that presents the voices of professional athletes, bringing fans closer to the games they love than ever before.
