David Villa recovery on schedule
David Villa showed his recovery from a broken leg is on schedule by scaling the 1,104-metre La Mola mountain near Barcelona on Thursday.
The Barca and Spain striker suffered a fractured left leg during his side’s World Club Cup championship success in Japan last December but is aiming to back for a possible Champions League final in Munich on May 19. The 30-year-old is also hoping to be available for the national squad as they defend their European Championship crown in Poland and Ukraine the following month, with Coach Vicente del Bosque still to decide on his main strikers for the tournament.
“The leg is getting better every day,” Villa wrote on his Twitter account, where he also posted a picture of teammate Sergio Busquets and two Barcelona officials on top of the mountain. “We are meeting all the deadlines in the recovery process."
