  • Spanish star striker Villa retires from football. Capture  VisselKobe

His silverware also includes a Champions League title with Barcelona, as well as two LaLiga wins and a World Club Cup medal.

Former Spain and Barcelona striker David Villa has announced he will retire from football at the end of the season.

He tweeted: "Queens always showed love to me and my family while we were in NY". "I spoke about this with the people who care about me, with my family, and the people who have been with me for my whole career".

"I wanted to retire from football, not be forced to retire", he added.

Villa, who has been playing for Vissel Kobe this year after four seasons in the United States with New York City, will become an investor in Queensboro FC, a new franchise based in the New York district of Queens that will play in the second tier of USA football. It is my objective to put the cherry on top by winning the Emperor's Cup with Vissel Kobe on January 1st.

Villa, Spain's record goal scorer with 59 in 98 appearances for his country, netted five times as they won the World Cup in 2010.
