The Barco-Del Solar surname has an important cream shop tradition. Álvaro, Alfonso’s father, was part of the ‘U’ in the 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992 and 1997 seasons. His uncles (”Chemo” and Fernando del Solar) were also part of the Ate squad at some point in their careers. .

When this opportunity to play in the ‘U’ appeared to me. I didn’t think about it. My whole family is a fan, I could never say it because I played in other teams, but my old man is dying for the ‘U’, ‘Chemo’ not to mention”, Explained ‘Fonchi’ in conversation with the University press.

Very excited to reach the greatest of all and happy to be here. Eager to train, to meet my teammates”Added the flyer.

Alfonso, before closing his agreement with Universitario, decided to talk with ‘Chemo’, who made his debut in the team and even managed to be crowned national champion three times (1987, 1999 and 2000). “I went to Chemo to talk at his house. He is very close to me, especially in these football issues, he advises me a lot”Explained Barco. “He told me “if you get this, there will be nothing more beautiful than playing in the ‘U’”.

Regarding what he hopes to achieve under the command of Gregorio Pérez in 2022, Alfonso said: “My personal goals are to help the team to what the fan and this club demand: to win. Also make a very good Copa Libertadores, which is what we all want”.

Barco debuted with San Martín in 2019, but his most outstanding season was that of 2021. Last year he added 1954 minutes in 25 games. He could not score any goal but was involved in more than one.
