David Villa thanks NYCFC fans, apologizes "for not achieving our objective"

There's been one question above all others for NYCFC fans following the team's postseason exit at the hands of Atlanta United: What's next for David Villa?

The captain, 36, hasn't spoken publicly since the 3-1 loss (4-1 aggregate) and has been the subject of rumors that he'd like to play one more season ... in an undetermined jersey

On Monday, Villa took to social media to share a message for his fans. He did not address his future.

In four seasons with NYCFC, Villa has scored 77 goals in 117 appearances. He is a three-time All-Star and 2016 Landon Donovan MLS MVP winner. This year he battled injuries, playing 23 games while producing 14 goals and 5 assists.
