Villa: Happy to help

David Villa is happy to have scored again for Barcelona and assisted Lionel Messi in their 3-1 win over Rayo Vallecano.

Sunday evening saw El Guaje open the scoring and then assist twice for strike-partner Messi.

“I like to be able to help the team with my goals. I want to keep on scoring and giving the most of myself,” Villa told reporters afterwards.

“I’m happy that I was able to help Messi score, we understand each other well.”

The striker admitted that Barcelona’s performance on Sunday may have been a struggle in light of the previous midweek’s efforts against Milan in Europe.

“We felt the fatigue due to the effort we put in on Tuesday, and it was even more noticeable tonight because Rayo are a demanding side.

“They wanted the ball and they forced us to press them.

“We’ve never lost sight of what we had to do, we simply picked up a couple of bad results.”
