David Villa admits he has only a formal relationship with Valencia coach Ronald Koeman.

"Man, we do not speak about our private lives but we often talk, in confidence, about the team, tactics ... he hasn't said anything to me about the separation of Albelda, Canizares and Angulo," said Villa.

"He has never spoken to me about the subject."

David Albelda is now training with Villa as part of the Spain squad and the striker added: "You can see he's enjoying himself. He's been having a rough time, but for these three days he can just think about football."
