David Villa Praises John Terry

The Barcelona forward has told reporters that John Terry is the toughest opponent he has ever played against. The Spanish forward help his club to win the World Cup earlier this year has spoke out about John Terry. Villa was also asked about Howard Webb’s refereeing however he refused to comment on the situation.

“I don’t like to criticise referees, because I believe it is a very complicated job,” Villa said. “But I believe the referee himself in an interview acknowledged that [leniency]. At the World Cup most teams changed their style when they played us and maybe were more defensive. In the final we didn’t know if Holland were going to do the same but the important thing was we beat them in the end.

“With Barça and Spain we find that now many teams try to replicate and imitate our style. A lot of teams are trying to play like that to keep the ball at the back, changing their own style. I guess in the future many teams will look to us as reference points and that is something we must be very proud of.”

Surprisingly, it is another Premier League player who Villa rates as his toughest opponent. “John Terry. Not just because of his reputation for being tough but because he is a great defensive player.”
