The details (from wikipedia)


Segundo Víctor Ibarbo Guerrero (born 19 May 1990) is a Colombian footballer who plays as a winger or forward for J-League side Sagan Tosu, on loan from Serie A club Cagliari.

After starting his career at Atlético Nacional, he moved to Cagliari in 2011, where he made over 100 Serie A appearances. He also had unsuccessful loans at Roma, Watford, back at Atlético Nacional and Panathinaikos.

A full international for Colombia since 2010, he was part of their teams that reached the quarter-finals at the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2015 Copa América.

Club career

On 4 July 2011, Ibarbo transferred from Atlético Nacional to Cagliari, having previously been close to a move to Udinese two years prior.

On 10 March 2013, he scored a hat-trick in a 3–1 win over Sampdoria, having only scored once in 23 previous games that season.

On 3 November 2014, he was given a straight red card in the 72nd minute of a 4–2 defeat at Lazio.

On 1 February 2015, he joined fellow Serie A club Roma on loan until the end of the season. The club paid €2.5 million, with the option to purchase him for €12.5 million. He made his debut two days later, replacing Francesco Totti for the last 17 minutes of a 0–2 home defeat against Fiorentina in the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia.

On transfer deadline day on 1 September 2015, Ibarbo joined Premier League side Watford on a season-long loan from Cagliari. Not a player who satisfied coach Quique Sánchez Flores, he made only four appearances for the Hornets, totalling just 64 minutes, and left in January 2016 to return on loan to Atlético Nacional.

On 31 March, he was sent off in a 2–1 loss at Millonarios; website Fútbol Red summarised that "The Verdolaga attacker did not inspire danger in Millonarios' fullbacks; instead his attitude was one of wanting to confront his opponents with malice and forefought". He scored his first goal of the spell on 4 June, equalising at home to Rionegro Águilas in the quarter-final second leg and then converting in the penalty shootout victory.

Ibarbo with Cagliari in March 2012

On 30 June 2016, he joined Greece's Panathinaikos on loan. On 4 August, he opened the scoring in a 2-0 away win against AIK for the second leg of the third qualifying round of UEFA Europa League. On 20 October 2016, he scored twice at Standard Liège in a 2–2 draw in the same competition.

After a string of poor performances and a league goal drought, during the managerial reigns of both Andrea Stramaccioni and Marinos Ouzounidis, the latter no longer featured Ibarbo in his first-team plans. In conjunction with Ibarbo's prolonged and unjustified absence from training after the 2016 Christmas break, Panathinaikos decided to initiate the necessary procedures for the termination of his loan spell from Cagliari. The player's loan spell at Panathinaikos was officially terminated on 31 January 2017.

On 14 March 2017, Cagliari reached an agreement with Japanese club Sagan Tosu to loan the player out until the end of the season, with a mandatory purchase option effective from the start of the 2017–18 campaign; if activated at the end of the current season, the player will sign a three-year contract until the summer of 2020.

International career

Ibarbo made his international debut on 27 May 2010 in a 2–1 defeat to World Cup hosts South Africa in Johannesburg. He gained four more caps in friendlies that year. On 14 November 2013, three days shy of three years since his last call-up, he scored his first international goal in a 2–0 friendly win over Belgium, after replacing Luis Muriel.

Ibarbo was a member of the Colombia squad which reached the quarter-finals of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. He started their first match in Group C, a 3–0 win over Greece. In the second match, a 2–1 win against the Ivory Coast, Ibarbo was substituted after 53 minutes for Juan Quintero due to injury. Quintero remained in the left-wing position until Ibarbo recovered for the quarter-final defeat to Brazil, in which he was replaced at half time by Adrián Ramos. He made two substitute appearances in Group C at the 2015 Copa América in Chile, in which Colombia again reached the last eight.
