David Villa calls it quits…. Why is David Villa retiring??????

One of the best forwards of his generation and one of the best Spanish strikers of all time, David Villa is ready to walk in the snow in January at the end of Japan's J-League season with Vissel Kobe who is currently playing in the J1 League. Villa has been playing for Vissel Kobe this year after four seasons in the United States with New York City. He scored 12 goals this season for Kobe.

The Kid is the winner of the 2010 World Cup and 2008 European Championship with his country and very soon calling his 19 year career quits.

This 37-year-old man wears a crown studded with jewel more than one, two La Liga titles and the Champions League with Barca. He has played in three world cups and has scored 59 times for Spain. And his feats do not just end here…the third goal for Barcelona at Wembley in the 3-1 win over Manchester United in the 2010-11 Champions League Final was also scored by him.

David bids his football career adieu because he does not want to be put out to grass and he admits of thinking about this minutely for quite some time.

Villa will become an investor in Queensboro FC, a new franchise located in the New York district of Queens that will play in the second tier of US football. It was his dream to build a new professional team and he acknowledges the love that Queens has always been showering not only on him but also his family during their stay in New York.
