David Villa is many things: World Cup winner, Euro champion, Champions League winner, professional Muppet.
The Spanish star, currently with NYC FC, made a cameo on the popular children’s show, providing visceral evidence that he really is adapting to life in the United States.
I’d expect to see him on Ballers sooner than Sesame Street, but when you’re David Villa, you get to do whatever show you want.
For a guy who’s spent less than two years living in the country, he fits in pretty nicely. As you can see in this preseason interview, he doesn’t use or need an interpreter (not to throw shade on Andrea Pirlo).
Whatever they’re doing on Sesame Street and the training ground, it’s working.
NYC FC sits atop the Eastern Conference table and is poised to make a deep playoff run.
