Barcelona legend Cruyff: Guardiola will play Villa on flank
Barca splashed out £34 million for the Valencia striker.
But Cruyff, Barca's honorary president, says Villa will be played as a winger: "That position is, I think, the place that Pep Guardiola has booked him for.
"Pep does not want Villa to be a No9, there is Messi. I wouldn't be surprised if he plays on the flank, dribbling, getting to the centre and, if there is no pass on, then shooting - one of his great qualities."
