The Asturian, in Barcelona since Friday, thanked fans on his Facebook page for all the support he’s received. FIFA has allowed FC Barcelona to wear a T-shirt before tomorrow’s final in support of the injured forward.
FIFA has granted the Club’s petition to allow the FC Barcelona players to wear a shirt before tomorrow's final in support of David Villa, who is in Barcelona awaiting surgery. The FC Barcelona players will wear the T-shirt worn by Carles Puyol (above) before the match against Santos FC.
Villa showed his appreciation for the show of support by the team and his fans via a public message on his Facebook page:
“Hello friends! I’m moved by all the messages you have sent me! Thank you so much! Don’t worry, I’ve rested well tonight and I’m feeling a lot better. I’m happy that I’m back home with my family. And, furthermore, I know I’m in good hands. I want to thank Doctor Pruna and, above all, Manel Estiarte. Without them, I don’t know what I would have done on the journey home! Now there’s less time to wait for me to recover! More to come." (via FCBarcelona.cat)
