Barcelona striker Villa happy to play anywhere for Spain

New Barcelona signing David Villa is happy to play anywhere for Spain.

Villa, who is preparing for Thursday's friendly against South Korea in Innsbruck, is happy to be used anywhere by coach Vicente Del Bosque as the European champions look to secure world glory in South Africa.

The 28-year-old, who joined Barcelona from Valencia last month, said: "The important thing is to play.

"If I play alone up front, then I tend to play central.

"But if there is another striker, I don't mind shifting to one wing."

With Liverpool forward Fernando Torres having recovered from knee surgery, Del Bosque could opt for two up front instead of playing with Villa as a lone striker.
