‘Villa has an amazing ability to score’

Santi Cazorla has hailed David Villa’s “amazing ability to score goals” ahead of the tour match against MLS All-Stars.

The former Barcelona striker scored 61 goals in 97 appearances for Spain, and is expected to lead the line for the hosts in this week's match in San Jose.

“David is simply one of the best Spanish strikers ever,” Cazorla told Arsenal Player. “He has an amazing ability to score goals. He was born with a real gift and he has always worked hard to keep developing it.

“I admire him hugely as a footballer but I also admire him as a person - we are really good friends. He has helped me in many different ways in my career and I’m delighted he’s doing so well in the MLS.

“It will be a really interesting game. There are some great players in the MLS and we are lucky enough to be playing against the best of them. It will be a very special match for both sides. The most important thing is that we perform really well.”
