Barcelona assistant coach Jordi Roura believes that striker David Villa will get back to his best soon.

The Spain striker helped Barca to an emphatic 7-0 aggregate win over Cordoba in the Copa del Rey with two stunning strikes in their 5-0 win on Thursday night.

Roura admits that he was impressed by the whole team, but took the opportunity to also single out Villa's performance.

"If there is something worth noting about this performance it is the attitude and ambition displayed by all the players," he told Marca.

"This was a game that we may have entered with a more conservative approach given our first leg victory. However, the desire to put on a show was evident in every player.

"I take my hat off to the players. They were exceptional in the first half and played with great intensity and to a very high level. Their attitude is remarkable and this needs to be recognised.

"Villa's goals were great. He is an exceptional player and he had a great match. It has showed us what we all know, that he is an important player for us.

"He's a real goalscorer and bit by bit, he'll get back to his best level and be even more important for us.

"Alexis helps us a lot, it's admirable how hard he works. It's a good thing he could score, that's important. He had several matches where he struggled to make it count. Today, fortunately, he has put that streak behind."

@Jommak I also have players I feel should start. @Barca_4sky so we can't play with false 9 nd true 9 tht's Y there's no space 4 Villa 4 now as Pedro n Sanchez are doin well on da wings. In 2010/2011 we scored many goals than Dinho's nd Eto'o's error.

Sure cule @City, we support the selected team even while we may have our favorite players, I personally want to see Tello play more for him to gel quicker with the team, just like I felt under Frank that Messi & Iniesta were not getting the time I wished for them, but I can never attack a Barca coach's selection, esp one doing as well as Tito is, so let's all support the team cules...

I hear you @barca_4, we are from different backgrounds like the Catalans from different regions, but once we decide to join an institution we abide by that institution's statutes, so you cannot say bcos Cesc & Jordi come from different regions so they can bring their regions into La Masia, the institution is greater than the individual. Rebelliousness is only cool to teenagers, good organization is the key to lasting success, that's why Etoo, Deco & Dinho had to go, it was not for football, they were destabilizing the institution...

@Barca_4sky, I don't have 2 prove anythin 2 any1, it's plain 2 c u can't change it, the team is unbeaten in 18 games with 1 draw. Doesn't that mean sumthin 2 u? Unless u hand-pick who should be sidelined in favour of ur favourite, Villa.
