Football club signs ex-captain to extension after loan deal ends

December 18, 2018

SEOUL, Dec. 18 (Yonhap) — South Korean football club FC Seoul said Tuesday they’ve signed former captain Osmar Barba to a new deal after his return from a loan stint.

The K League 1 club said the Spanish veteran, commonly known as Osmar, agreed to a three-year deal, after spending the 2018 season on a loan deal with Cerezo Osaka in Japan.

Osmar first joined FC Seoul in 2014. Able to play both as a center back and a defensive midfielder, Osmar was named team captain in 2016 — the first foreign captain in FC Seoul history — and led them to the K League 1 championship that year.

Without Osmar manning the middle, FC Seoul barely avoided relegation to the second-tier K League 2 for 2019, after edging out Busan IPark in the promotion-relegation playoff earlier this month.
