On Monday, Villa took to social media to share a message for his fans. He did not address his future.
After taking a few days to reflect, I wanted to apologize to all @NYCFC fans for not achieving our objective this season. I want to thank you for the unconditional support that you gave us this year. You have, again, been the the cornerstone of our club! pic.twitter.com/EYKLA8Otx7— David Villa (@Guaje7Villa) November 19, 2018
