Gerónimo Barbadillo González (September 29, 1954) is a retired Peruvian footballer.

A right winger, he spent his best seasons with Tigres UANL of the Liga MX. He also played for Avellino and Udinese in Serie A. He participated in the 1982 FIFA World Cup with the Peruvian national team. He is nicknamed "La Patrulla" ("The Patrol").

An icon of Tigres UANL, the team retired the number 7 shirt to honor him.


Barbadillo started playing in 1972 with Sport Boys Callao. In 1974, he moved to play for Defensor Lima. In 1975, he arrived in Monterrey, Mexico to play for Tigres UANL, for whom he scored over 61 goals in 6 years. Aside from his goalscoring, Barbadillo also played 17 Clásico Regiomontano derby matches against Monterrey, Tigres' main rival. Because he is considered one of the best players the team has ever had, his number, #7, has been retired and immortalized.

Barbadillo then moved in 1982 to Italy to play for Avellino, after his magnificent performance in the FIFA World Cup. He played later for Udinese in 1985-86. He has retired as a player and lives in Italy. He has been in charge of Udinese's youth team since 2005.
