The full back played alongside David Villa with Spain and believes that his country’s all-time record goalscorer will be “the star” of the MLS All-Stars team.
“He is a truly great player,” Nacho told Arsenal Player. “He is so ambitious. Wherever he plays, he is always hungry for more.
“He is not content with what he has already achieved but wants to keep on improving and that’s exactly what he has done.
“In Spain he proved himself to be one of our best players - one of the best in the world. In the USA now he carries on doing the same - giving 100 per cent and scoring many goals.
“He is the star of his team. His ability to score goals from any situation is just stunning.”
