You already know that his full name is David Villa Sánchez and that he plays in FC Barcelona under the number 7, but what else do you know about him?
He was born in 1981 in Tuilla, Asturias, one of the greenest places in Spain. He wanted to play for Real Oviedo, but he was rejected because he was too short! So he started playing for the local team, Real Sporting of Gijón. Then he went to Real Zaragoza, and from there to Valencia. It wasn’t until this very year (2010) that Villa got to FC Barcelona.
He debuted with the Spanish Team in 2005 and was acclaimed Best Scorer in 2008 with 4 goals. During 2010’s FIFA World Cup he surpassed Raul as best scorer with the Spanish Team, scoring a total amount of 8 goals.
Villa’s currently the 18th best scorer in Spanish League’s History, with almost 150 goals, and is a playable character in the FIFA videogames since 2007.
As for his personal life, he’s married and has two beautiful little girls named Olaya and Zaida. His nickname is “El Guaje”, that means “little kid”, because he was always trying to play with the older ones.
Also, he’s one of the candidates to this year’s Ballon d’Or. Do you support him?
