David Villa to Join Iniesta & Torres in Japan

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.

Iniesta has been a massive success with attendances sold out wherever Kobe play.  Constantly in the Japanese sports press and on countless television shows out there.

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.

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.

I've been watching the MLS this season and I think @Blue may he right. The play seems to quality, there's some technically gifted players there and the defending can't exactly be any worse.
