David Villa to Join Iniesta & Torres in Japan

football forum

Recommended Posts

Neither Iniesta or Torres have had the impact they expected so it will be interesting to see how he does.

Former Spain striker David Villa will become the latest high-profile footballer to move to Japan after signing with J-League side Vissel Kobe.

The 36-year-old will join his former Spain and Barcelona teammate Andres Iniesta at the Japanese top-flight club when his four-year spell in Major League Soccer with New York City ends later this month.

Villa had announced on Wednesday that he would leave the American club when his contract expires on December 31 and didn't take long to secure a new club.

Is David Villa the first player to retire to a second rate league and retire again after that to a third rate league?

I'd say the J-league is better than the MLS TBH.

You on Guerrero Tea again?! 

Nah, the J-League is underrated.

Good local players, lots of talent and good foreigners. It's not a good league but I'd have it over the MLS.

This is going to be a generalized example but Kashima were a contest to Real Madrid a few years ago. Took them to extra time. I can't see the same with any MLS team TBH.
