Johnnier Montaño (born 14 January 1983 in Cali) is a Colombian professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder. He currently plays for FBC Melgar in the Torneo Descentralizado. His brother, Victor Hugo Montaño play in México, in Toluca.


Montaño was a highly-rated young player at Quilmes in Argentina and set records by featuring for the Colombian National Team at the young age of 15, doing well enough to earn a spot on the team that went to the 1999 Copa América. Montaño scored the final goal in a 3–0 win for Colombia over Argentina in a game best remembered for Martin Palermo missing 3 penalty kicks. He later went on to represent Colombia at the 2001 South American Youth Championships. He made his last appearance for the full national team in 2003.

Earning recognition on the international scene at such a young age, Montaño was considered a potential star, and signed for Italian club Parma in 1999 along with team-mate Jorge Bolaño. Over the new few years Montaño suffered personal problems, and he was repeatedly loaned out after failing to break into the Parma first team, firstly to Hellas Verona for the 2001–02 season, and then to Piacenza from 2002–2003. He only made limited appearances for both teams, who coincidentally both ended up relegated from Serie A while Montaño was there.

With limited opportunities in Italy, Montaño embarked on a nomadic career, first returning to his native Colombia to sign for América de Cali, and subsequently Independiente Santa Fe. After finishing periods at Al-Wakra in Qatar and Cortuluá back in Colombia, he considered retiring, before enjoying a more successful stint at Sport Boys in Peru.

After scoring 9 goals for Sport Boys, Montaño was wanted by many of the larger Peruvian teams. Both Universitario and Alianza Lima claimed to have signed him. Finally, despite having signed a pre-contract with Universitario, Montaño was signed by Alianza Lima.

After a two season stay with no mayor achievement in the Peruvian league he was loaned to Konyaspor.

Johnier Montaño dissociated himself from his team after problems with the club if the club back to its pass Deuno Alianza Lima.

In June 2010, Montaño signed a 1 year contract with Turkish side Konyaspor.[2]
