In the offices of the Junior of Barranquilla there is no day off. With the departure of Miguel Ángel Borja, Juan Cruz Real and the managers are trying to arm themselves in the best way for the BetPlay 2022-II League that is just around the corner. Borja will soon pass the medical exams with River Plate and will undoubtedly be a sensitive loss.
However, and although it is not the same position on the pitch, Junior is already beginning to look for players who will contribute their football to find important titles. They were close to reaching the final of the Liga BetPlay 2022-I, but they escaped in that match against Atlético Nacional. The Barranquilleros rowed with several casualties throughout the tournament, and want to fill the midfield with a new acquisition.
With the confirmed renewal of Luis Daniel González after several rumors that he would go to Atlético Nacional or Millonarios, Junior will bring an accompaniment to Daniel Giraldo, Carlos Esparragoza and Didier Moreno. The directors of the Barranquilla club reached an agreement with Iván Javier Rossi, an Argentine brand midfielder.
Iván Rossi arrives from the Marítimo de Portugal. At 28 years old, Rossi has passed through clubs such as River Plate, Banfield, Huracán, Colo Colo from Chile, Sambenedettense from Italy and recently in the ranks of the Portuguese club. This was confirmed by the Portuguese institution.
‘Marítimo da Madeira Futebol SAD informs that it has reached an agreement with Junior de Barranquilla for the definitive transfer of player Iván Javier Rossi. The club thanks him for the commitment and dedication with which he served the team, sending him sincere wishes for professional and personal happiness,’ the club maintained.
This weekend, Iván Javier Rossi will arrive in Barranquilla to present the corresponding medical exams and prepare for the BetPlay League 2022-II. Rossi comes from playing 28 games with Marítimo. He is not a brand midfielder with a lot of goals, but he is one who defends well, leads the midfield and scratches when he has to.
