(GSM) – Barcelona striker David Villa has expressed his deepest sympathy towards the trapped miners’ families by sending two signed shirts.

Close to 33 workers have been trapped down a Chilean shaft for more than a month, and Villa, whose family have worked in mining for generations, has sent a personal message on the Barca shirts.

The 28-year-old, who hails from the Spanish mining region of Asturias, signed one Barca shirt “be strong” and wrote a personal message on another for Franklin Lobos, a former professional football player who is one of the trapped workers.

“I am part of the mining family and I share the concern of the relatives but everything will turn out well,” Villa was quoted as saying by Spanish sports daily El Mundo Deportivo.

“I wanted to let them know that I am with them, that all of us who know what it’s like in a mine are with them and that the whole world is watching them and supports them,” he added.
