In 1930 Barbu was a member of the Romanian team which played at the 1930 FIFA World Cup: he played against Peru and Uruguay, without scoring any goals. His last match for the national team was in the same year, when Romania lost to Bulgaria. In 1933 he moved at Rapid Bucureşti where he won three times the Romanian Cup (1934–1935, 1935–1936, 1937–1938) and was also the top scorer of Liga I in 1935-1936 with 23 goals.
