Barrios has become coach Diego Simeone’s central midfield option as Atletico Madrid have no new signings in that position. And the 20-year-old midfielder’s chance came after Jorge Resurrecion Koke’s injury in the opening game of the season.

‘Last season He told me he saw me as the main character. and during the pre-season. He started playing in that position. I used to play there when I was a kid. And I felt comfortable playing [there].’ 

Asked if he was more comfortable playing lower or moving forward. Barrios said: ‘Let’s see, what happens to me is when I play in midfield. I will remember what I did when I played as a central midfielder. And when I play as a central midfielder I remember what I did in that position. I’ve played a lot in both positions. I feel comfortable in both positions. I don’t care what position it is as long as I can help the team.’
