Barcelona Striker David Villa: Jose Mourinho's Arrival Is Good For Real Madrid

The striker cannot wait to start...
Barcelona new boy David Villa says that the arrival of Jose Mourinho as the coach of Real Madrid this summer is a good thing for the capital side.

The Spain striker, who helped la Roja Furia to their first ever World Cup triumph in the summer, has been quoted by Record as saying that the former Inter coach has "great charisma and great quality" and that his arrival in Madrid is important for Spanish football as well.

"It will be good for Real Madrid but I cannot wish him all the luck in the world," Villa went on.

The former Valencia hitman has only trained with Barcelona and might not be handed a starting role by coach Pep Guardiola during Saturday's Spanish Super Cup first-leg encounter with Sevilla.

"The holiday has been good but when you start something new you want to get going as soon as possible," said the World Cup winner, according to Barcelona's official website.

“I don’t know [if I will play on Saturday]. We’ve just come back from a very long journey. We’re tired. We start training today and I don’t make these decisions."
