Atletico Madrid president thrilled with Villa deal: We beat the English!

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo is delighted with their swoop for Barcelona striker David Villa.

Barca announced the sale late yesterday.

"Villa has many seasons left in football. He's a natural goalscorer. We expect him to get a lot of goals," smiled Cerezo.

"We're happy, I think the fans are going crazy because they thought he was going to go to a major English team.

"He is an easy match for the goals of Falcao. Villa's goalscoring will be good for us."
