Jarlan Barrier was one of the main sports topics this Wednesday in Colombia, after in a press conference he made controversial statements about his passage through Junior from Barranquilla and the dream of wearing the colors of National.
“It was a dream that I had for a long time (playing in Nacional), I felt it when I was in Junior, where we lost finalsthe feeling of crying was different, because one left crying but losing finals. Now one here enjoys titles and it’s nice. People transmit love for the shield,” said the 26-year-old footballer.

These phrases did not go down very well with the swollen ‘shark’, which in fact reminded him that he was a direct part in the loss of the South American Cup 2017 in the final before Athletico Paranaense after missing a penalty. This situation was the starting point for a rupture between the Junior fans and the player that is difficult to heal.
However, Barrera won two titles with the rojiblanco team Colombia Cup (2015 and 2017) and League II-2018while with the Verdolaga team he has already won the 2021 Colombia Cup and recently the League, in which he was key by scoring the winning goal against Tolima.
