Six years ago Bacca was an unknown fisherman back in his home country, he also worked a bus driver’s assistant in a way of earning more money for his family, as they came from a poor background.
Now in 2015 Bacca has lifted the Europa League trophy twice and is a full Colombian international ready to star at this year’s Copa America. Not a bad story to tell your kids, eh?
The striker has enjoyed an illustrious career full of goals. He started his career off at Atlético Junior after gaining his first professional contract, he then spent a couple of season out on loan to several different clubs around the South America area.
In 2013, Belgian side Club Brugge signed Bacca and definitely didn't regret it. In his single season the club he managed to notch up 28 goals in 45 appearances - just over a goal every two games.
Bacca was then spotted by Sevilla has been on fire for the Spanish club since joining two years ago, helping them achieve back-to-back Europa League successes. The Colombian has hit 49 goals since making the move from Club Brugge.
Liverpool should sign Bacca
With Liverpool seriously struggling for goals last season and their forwards combined scoring a measly eight goals, the Reds have just signed Danny Ings on a free transfer which could prove a nifty signing but a player of Bacca’s calibre would show the club’s ambition, with him already shown he can produce on the big stage.
Bacca is already one of Europe’s most in-demand strikers and the 28-year-old will be on show for Colombia in the Copa America hoping to take his terrific club form into the tournament and enhance his reputation furthermore.
