David Villa was pleased with his runout for Valencia in their friendly defeat to Manchester United last night.

Valencia lost 2-0, but Villa was satisfied with the hitout.

"In the first-half, Valencia went very well, but in the second we were overtaken by a strong opponent. In addition, we suffered the injury to Carleto," said Villa.

"I am pleased to be able to start playing with Valencia and on a field like this. They are the first minutes of the season. It was like an official game and I'll continue working."
