Juan Manuel Barrero Barrero (born 27 June 1980 in Badajoz, Extremadura), known as Juanma, is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a goalkeeper.

He spent most of his 16-year professional career in the Spanish lower leagues. He appeared in 38 La Liga games during three seasons, with Atlético Madrid and Numancia.

Football career[edit]

After beginning with local Mérida UD, Juanma moved in 2002 to Atlético Madrid, first with its B-team. With the main squad he played twice in his first season, then 11 times in the 2003–04 campaign as all goalkeepers (himself, Germán Burgos and Sergio Aragoneses) appeared in roughly the same matches[1][2] and the Colchoneros eventually qualified for the UEFA Intertoto Cup.

Juanma then spent two seasons with CD Numancia, starting in his first but being relegated from La Liga after which he left in 2006, resuming his career in the lower leagues: Mérida again, Universidad de Las Palmas CF, CF Atlético Ciudad and AD Alcorcón.

In mid-July 2010, after helping Alcorcón promote for the first time in its history to the second division – he was also in goal for the club's historical elimination of Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey – 30-year-old Juanma moved abroad, joining a host of compatriots at Aris Thessaloniki FC, with whom he penned a two-year contract. After one unassuming season in Greece he returned to his country, signing for FC Cartagena in the second level.
