Football career[edit]

Born in Seville, Andalusia, Villa joined the youth system of Real Madrid at the age of 15, and made his professional debut for the B-team in 1959. He never appeared in La Liga for the main squad, but played in the competition with Real Sociedad and Real Zaragoza, amassing league totals of 183 games and 53 goals over the course of exactly ten seasons, before retiring in 1971 at nearly 33.

Villa earned three caps for Spain, all in 1964. He was part of the squad that conquered that year's European Nations' Cup.
