NYCFC, former intern describes sexual harassment allegations against David Villa
A former Major League Soccer New York City FC training staff intern spoke in an interview with The Athletic's Pablo Maurer about alleged sexual harassment by former NYCFC player and international star David Villa. Skyler Badillo, who was 20 when she joined NYCFC as an intern with the first team's training staff in May 2018, first raised the charges against Villa on Twitter in July. In a recent interview with The Athletic, he said he had suffered two seasons of harassment at the club, including Villa's advances that became so frequent that they were a joke in the training room. His supervisors, he said, have enabled the behavior. The allegations include inappropriate touches and frequent verbal advances from Villa.
