David Villa Bio and Career
The success story of David Villa starts in a small Spanish village, named Tuilla. His family was quite poor, although his father tried his best to provide his son for everything necessary. He worked as a minor.
David met his first obstacle on his career way at the age of 4. Then he got a serious trauma – he broke his hipbone. That injure could make the boy disable. Villa’s father, José Manuel, did everything he could to exercise his son after his trauma. Thus David Villa started to practice football.
When Villa turned 17, he was already sure he wanted to become a soccer player. But you are wrong, if you think that numerous football clubs stood in a queue in order to hook a rising star. On the contrary, he got a reputation of a weak, not hardy player. “Real Oviedo” refused to take him.
Thus David Villa appeared in Sporting Gijón. In early 2000s Villa finally demonstrated his talent. He scored 25 during 2 seasons. Soon he was noticed by scouts of other prestigious teams. After a while David Villa was transferred to Real Zaragoza. After several successful seasons there he moved to Valencia. Having spent 5 years there, David made the hardest decision in his life. He left FC Valencia and moved to FC Barcelona.
In 2014 Villa got an “irresistible offer”. He got a chance to play in MFL for New York City club. Probably, that is the highest point of his career.
It is so exciting to get multi-million net worth. But to make such a long way from a village in Spain to the famous US city New York, Villa had to struggle. That’s why now he deserves to spend some part of his wealth for expensive beautiful things he likes. David, who is a big lover of classy cars, spent astonishing $45, 000 for Porsche 911 Turbo.
For years 911 Turbo was considered as the ideal choice for moneybags, and it remains a legend till now. The vehicle can boast with monstrous 540 hp. The car reaches 60 mph within several seconds after its appearance on the road. That’s the best vehicle for Spanish striker David Villa, who can be seen at the wheel of his super car quite often, if he is free from work.
