As he leaves confused, contorted defenders in his wake, you wonder if he still has the chops to be playing with Barcelona.

By all accounts, Villa is loving life in New York.

He’s learned to speak English fluently in the year and a half since his arrival and gets to share the training ground every day with soccer royalty.

Villa, still spry at 34,  is the youngest of NYC FC’s Big 3.

Andrea Pirlo is 36 Frank Lampard is the dean of the group at 37.

While you don’t see either Pirlo or Lampard returning to Europe, sometimes with Villa, you wonder “What if…”

Here’s a look at Villa’s top 10 goals ever. The commentary is priceless.

Villa was featured prominently on those Spanish sides of legend that dominated world football from 2008-2012, winning the 2008 Euro Cup, the 2010 World Cup, and the 2012 Euro Cup.

The sun has set on the golden era of the Spanish national team, but you wonder if Villa doesn’t have just a little more to give.
