David Villa leaving New York City FC
The sad announcement has arrived. David Villa will leave NYCFC when his contract ends later this month. Villa’s departure had been rumored but it was made official with an announcement Wednesday.
After four seasons as captain and 80 goals scored in the MLS with the City shirt, Villa has made the drastic decision to leave New York. For him, it is not the farewell to soccer, but he has not yet announced where he has decided to play his last years as a player. That announcement is expected in the coming days.
While NYC FC and Villa separate, certainly his legacy will remain forever in the history of New York. The club will now have to replace Villa and it will not be easy to do it. The sure thing is that Villa will remain forever in the hearts of all the supporters of the City.
Villa will always be part of New York City FC that loses a champion and a great man and that impoverishes the MLS of a real phenom.
