David Villa: Standing Up to Shirt Stains

Initially, Iker raised his hand for razors. Because we’d like to envision a certain red-bearded ‘baller turning green with envy at his national teammate’s sexy star power, Xabi Alonso chose to “man up” for moisturizers.
And now, there’s this: Barcelona’s David Villa and his tough crew of arm-crossed toddlers testing the threshold of their preferred turf stain treatment: Skip detergent.
Before you’re quick to roll your eyes at reading about yet another footballer’s shilling skills, let it be known this partnership isn’t just about promoting products. Turns out, this Spanish cloth-stain combatant enlisted our 2nd favourite DILF (first is here) to showcase his sporting superiority and demonstrate how recreational activities can be used as vehicles for child development.
Okay, fine. Doting, dirt-fighting daddies are said to be extremely hazardous to the lifespan of your internal organs. So definitely don’t enlarge the photo at left. Or any of our image thumbnails, for that matter. And only continue reading if you agree to do so at your own risk.
Last week while in Madrid, the soulpatch supremo led a master skills class with his fellow anklebiters, filmed a TV advert and fielded media interviews all before finishing off the day’s festivities by lending Skip a helpful hand in their attempt to clean the 40 kids’ shirts.
So, as we were saying, Villa provided some choice quotes to the media outlets in attendance, which we’ve captured here for the nosy nellies among us:
- Meanwhile, in the Villa household, he claimed that his lovely kids “are stained a lot,” but it’s his wife, Patricia, who is responsible for always keeping Zaida and Olaya looking “great” and well-groomed
- He also copped to his child-rearing tactics (or lack thereof) by admitting he “just tries to help, but not interfere” with Patricia’s stay-at-home-mum skills, mainly because he “knows that is not” his “thing”
