Villa made headlines across the world after agreeing to what was originally a ten-game guest stint with City.
However the former Barcelona and Atletico Madrid man left the club after just four games and without a win.
When asked if Villa’s presence had been a distraction, Kisnorbo said: “Maybe a little bit, he’s a big, big player, but we just have to worry about ourselves.”
City will be aiming to notch up its first win of the season against bottom of the table Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday.
