SHOWS: BARCELONA, SPAIN (SEPTEMBER 12, 2012) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) BARCELONA STRIKER DAVID VILLA, SAYING: "As you can probably understand, as I missed so much of last season, I am hoping to make this one a great year and help the team to succeed. And personally, I want to feel useful again, to feel as a football player again. And be happy in my day to day life, thanks to good health." 2. PHOTOGRAPHER EDITING 3. VILLA AT NEWS CONFERENCE 4. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) BARCELONA STRIKER DAVID VILLA, SAYING: "You never know what amount of goals is going to be good for the team. You can score many useful goals for the team that aren't that important, but score less goals which are important. I have always tried to play for the team. The key here is not whether David Villa scores loads of goals at the end of the season, but that the goals have helped the team get as many points as possible and reach their goals." STORY: Striker David Villa is delighted at his return to fitness - and wants to help club side Barcelona win as much as possible this season. The 30-year-old missed most of the last campaign after breaking his leg at the Club World Cup in December. But he returned to action last month, scoring for Barcelona after coming on as a substitute during a 5-1 win against Real Sociedad. And then Spain's all-time leading scorer took his tally to 52 in his first match back with the national team against Saudi Arabia. "As you can probably understand, as I missed so much of last season, I am hoping to make this one a great year and help Barcelona to succeed," he told reporters in Spain on Wednesday (September 12). "And personally I want to feel useful again, to feel as a football player again. And be happy in my day to day life, thanks to good health." Villa is used to scoring regularly for Barcelona, netting 15 times last season in La Liga before the injury, and on 34 occasions in 2010-11. However, he said that the number of goals he scores in the next 10 months or so is not what drives him on - but their importance is. "You never know what amount of goals is going to be good for the team," he said. "You can score many useful goals for the team that aren't that important, but score less goals which are important. I have always tried to play for the team. The key here is not whether David Villa scores loads of goals at the end of the season, but that the goals have helped the team get as many points as possible and reach their goals."
