Iniesta confident Villa will be Barcelona success

Andres Iniesta says fellow Spain World Cup winner David Villa will be successful at Barcelona.

The 28-year-old former Valencia forward played alongside several of his new team-mates at the World Cup, and Iniesta believes he will fit right in at his new club.

"He will be very happy here - Barcelona's style of play is very well suited to him," he said.

Iniesta has won virtually everything there is to win in the game at club and international level following Spain's World Cup triumph in South Africa, but the mild-mannered midfielder remains as motivated as ever ahead of the new season.

"If we don't win titles, it won't be because we have already won lots. The new season is a stimulus and a motivation," he said.

"I'm going to work hard in every training session and every game to make it a great season."
