Villa and his team-mates beat Holland thanks to Andres Iniesta's extra-time goal exactly a year ago on Monday to claim a maiden World Cup triumph.
"I saw grown men crying like babies," Villa told Marca in an interview.
"In the dressing room we were all in tears. I was shocked to see tears from Xavi and Iniesta, players who have won everything in football, crying. I cried like a child."
