David Villa Seeing Why It's Not Easy To Be One Of The Best Players In The World:

Who knows what exactly is going on in the background but David Villa is still managing to play well for Spain even though his club team, Valencia, are playing hardball as they try to sell him to another team:

"Last week was not easy at all. I admit that it's been bad for me. I wouldn't wish all this on anybody but, with the advice of my family, I've erased it all from my mind," he said.

"Also I've tried to have respect for the national team and my team-mates. I don't want them to see what I'm going through,

"Away from the pitch there are times when I'm worse. Nevertheless, when I go out on the pitch I try to show what I can do.

"On the pitch is where I feel better and I'm proud to be part of this national team, not only for the great team that it is but also for the great human quality." (Source)
