Villa leaves the A-League after Friday’s clash against Brisbane Roar, just four games into an expected ten-game stint.

The details around the Spain all-time leading goalscorers departure are sketchy, but it is believed it a combination of family and promotional reasons have led to an early return to New York.

Villa’s family have remained in New York to settle into their new home, however the fact the City have not confirmed a return date has Aloisi thinking the former Barcelona and Atletico Madrid man is not enjoying his time in A-League.

“If he’s missing his family you would think that they would just fly the family out,” Aloisi told Fox Sports’ Shootout.

“If they’re saying he needs to promote New York City over there, you would have thought they would have announced that beforehand.

“Reading in between the lines, I think there’s something else.

“I don’t know if he’s totally happy or if they’ve already planned he was only going to be here for four games.”
