You’d be forgiven for not noticing but both Barcelona and Spain have been without David Villa for the best part of eight months since the forward splintered his shin bone during the Club World Cup semi-final in Yokohama back in December of last year.

Villa hasn’t played since, but the good news is that he’s back in training and it would appear as if the old shooting boots are still in good working order – as Jose Manuel Pinto will duly attest.

After a training session at Joan Gamper yesterday, Pinto tweeted the following photo, along with the message, “I can confirm that David Villa is shooting sharp again! As proof, here’s the mark left by his powerful shot!’…

Nice of Villa to sign his handiwork too.

    They missed him, I think David Villa was the missing link in Barca vs Chelsea, he can score from outside the box which I think is something they where missing.

    @Connor You’re right man. I think he was missed even more at the Euros for the same reason. Spain were very dangerous inside the box, but outside the box not so much. Not that it matters, they did manage to win it after all.
