Commanded by Patrick Vieira and with the same or more energy than in the beginning of his career, David Villa starts his third season in MLS on Sunday. The rival will be Orlando City and the objective will be to continue growing individually and collectively in a football in permanent boom.
Of the 10 teams that started the MLS in 1996, the figure has been increasing every year to the current 24, with the debut this season of Atlanta United and Minnesota United. The clubs will play a total of 34 games going in their way to the playoffs.
With 23 goals and a total leadership squandering, the MLS last season recognized David Villa as the MVP of the season. Together with Andrea Pirlo and without Frank Lampard, the Spaniard will try to improve the semifinals achieved in 16/17. Everything is ready to see David Villa again on the pitch.
