In the summer of 2015, Barrios moved to Boca Juniors in Argentina and while in Buenos Aires he twice won the Argentinian title (season 2016/17 and 2017/18) and reached the final of the Copa Libertadores in 2018. Wilmar played 66 matches for the South American giants and scored one goal.
In February 2019, Wilmar joined us in St. Petersburg and in his two and a half seasons here he has played 92 matches, scored two goals and made three assists. He’s also won the Russian Premier League title three times, the Super Cup twice and the Russian Cup once.
Everyone at Zenit is delighted Wilmar has agreed to extend his stay with us and we wish him every success on the pitch and beyond!
