On December 19th David Villa successfully underwent surgery on the fracture of his left tibia, an injury sustained during the World Club Cup semifinal against Al-Sadd. The recovery period was said to be between four and five months. After just under three and a half months of intense work, the Barça striker affirmed that he’s "seeing the light at the end of the tunnel".

Villa referred to his injury and his mood, in the talk he gave at an event in which the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and the Association of Spanish Footballers (AFE) presented an agreement under which all football grounds, from the First Division to the Third, will have a defibrillator on their premises.

Very enthusiastic

"I'm really enthusiastic, burning up the later phases, thank God, with a lot of work every day since it happened. I'm really happy, lively, content, and eager. I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, and keen to enjoy football again from within", said Villa, just before commenting that, since the first day after his injury, he’s worked hard to recover as soon as possible.
