Most importantly, the best part is that Jarlan Barrera never disappeared from the scene, he attempted a comeback and now the Colombian football is celebrating his return to the field.
What happened at half-time is a story: his weight was 94 kg, the exhausting physical work in the gym, the strict diet, the coordination with the ball, the depression after his last experience at Atlético Nacional, the pain… his 80 kg weight. Faced with reality and his decision to remain a footballer, he is ready for revenge.
The brand new Chinese reinforcements appeared again in Independiente Medellin’s 1-0 win against Deportivo Cali this Monday. He was a substitute, coming on in the second half, and his team immediately took notice.
He made long passes, made some precise crosses inside the area and was even on the verge of coming back with a goal if this tremendous free kick had not hit the crossbar:
His statistical balance was 1 shot on goal, 2 scoring chances created, 6 recovery and 81 percent accuracy on his passes. conclusion?

Is required.
It is true that he was enjoying his play on the court, but he also clearly seemed to lack rhythm, and at times was unable to socialize much with his teammates as he played individual games. Was chosen very highly. Of course, they didn’t support the recovery much due to the lack of competition, which is normal, but Sugar Club fans have a right to be excited by what they offered. The stakes are going very well.
