Antonio Barragan Fernandez is a Spanish football player who currently features for the Spanish football club Valencia. He plays as a right-back.

Barragan graduated from the Sevilla FC youth academy but before he had even appeared for the senior side, he was signed by Premier League giants Liverpool in July 2005 when he just 18 years of age. He was largely confined to the Liverpool reserves in his first and only season at Anfield and played a single league game in the 2005-2006 season,

But young Antonio Barragan did create history in his short stay at Liverpool when he came on as a substitute for fellow Spaniard Fernando Morientes in the first leg of the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League, thereby becoming the youngest ever foreigner to play for the Merseyside club.
