Barrios’ first remarks after his renewal


Pablo Barrios is the greatest pearl to emerge from Atlético de Madrid’s youth system in recent years. This Monday saw the renewal of the 19-year-old Madrid midfielder of the rojiblanco club until 2028. After this renewal, he shared his first impressions with the media of the Metropolitan entity.

first squad

“It’s like a dream come true, that you are part of the locker room of players and coaching staff that you haven’t seen on TV in a long time. Is incredible. Now I have to keep working to give my best. Ever since I started playing, you dream of it one day and when you reach it, it’s… how powerful, you still can’t believe it”

Your debut

“They called me for the Cádiz game and I still can’t believe it. I’m warming up in the band, they call you, you feel like you’re rushing: ‘I’m going out…’. When I was about to do it, Cholo told me to be calm, be brave, don’t be afraid and play fast”.

Headline against Barça

“I try not to be too nervous and do my best. Not long ago, I was still watching these kinds of matches on TV, an Atleti-Barça one. That day the coach told me that I will play from the beginning and the truth is you say: ‘Wow, from the beginning, against Barça, with our fans…’. The only thing is the result, but as an experience it is very good”.

life change

“It’s all just a dream. Less than a year I came here, with the youth team, to come out at half-time and now I can play in front of the fans. That seems like a long time ago but it was less than a year ago and it’s unbelievable.”

Fernando Torres, his mentor

“Since the beginning of the year it was known that it was going to be great. Fernando, our coach… Working with him was amazing. We are building a great group, with great work in the League and the League of Youth. The key to the Academy is that all the teams are above all one team. A lot of boys will be given a chance”.

Sports fans

“He gave me incredible love, I thank him a lot and I will try to return it on the field. I look forward to it.”

His period at Atlético

“I came to Atleti when I was a Cadet and Atleti gave me everything, not only on the pitch, but also in values”.
