Gonzalo Villar makes his debut against Al-Nassr

The central midfielder joined the club’s academy in 2015 and started in midfield alongside Kondogbia

This week’s friendly in Riyadh was a chance for Gonzalo Villar to make his debut with the first team, with Marcelino choosing to place the youngster in alongside Geoffrey Kondogbia in central midfield. He consistently asked for the ball and looked to both be creative and track back and work hard defensively. Gonzalo wants to make the most of his opportunities.

Villar joined the VCF Academy back in the summer of 2015 from Elche CF. Against Al-Nassr he showcased his strong technical ability, wearing the number 27 shirt before being replaced at the break with the rest of his first-half teammates.
